Note: These herpes (and usually HPV) groups are not run by HWerks. They are run by awesome volunteers! While some groups may focus on support, others may be purely for social and dating. Local groups are just another way to meet people in your area and are a great asset to the community! Each group is different so please visit their website for more details. See the Local Groups page to learn more or Join HWerks and start meeting people today!

Having herpes does not change who you are. Sometimes the stigma associated with this virus can make us feel lonely. By joining H2O of Pittsburgh, members learn that they are never alone. We draw on each others gifts and talents to cope with the challenges of living with herpes. Through H2O, members learn to enjoy life — not hide from it.
We respect and protect member confidentiality. H2O provides the opportunity to people with herpes to make new friends, socialize, and have fun in a non-threatening and relaxed environment.
