Alliance provides the basic necessities of life – food and shelter – to people struggling with poverty, homelessness and HIV/AIDS in Los Angeles County.
50% of people living with HIV/AIDS will have some form of housing crisis in their lifetime. From the beginning of the AIDS epidemic in 1983, Aid for AIDS and the Serra Project have been on the frontline providing care to those who are not able to help themselves.
We use housing as a structural intervention against the spread of HIV. Because of stable housing, medication regimens can be followed, risky behaviors are reduced, and our clients are linked up to resources for comprehensive care.
We provide help to more than 1,300 individuals and families every year through housing, utility assistance, and food vouchers. We stand as a beacon of compassion and aid during the most desperate times.
The charitable contributions of our donors ensure that those hardest hit by the AIDS epidemic have access to the basic necessities of life – food and shelter. 94% of all revenue goes directly to client programs.

Today is National Gay Men's HIV/AIDS Awareness Day.
Researchers found that some gay and bisexual men in HIV medical care, especially young non-Hispanic black and Hispanic/Latino MSM, are not receiving the ancillary services they need to improve their health overall and help them achieve and maintain viral suppression. Ancillary services are those that support retention in HIV medical care and assist with day-to-day living, such as non-HIV medical care, peer group support, food and nutrition support, transportation assistance, and shelter or housing services.
