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.
Marsha P. Johnson was an African-American transgender rights activist. She along with Sylvia Rivera founded Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (STAR) in the early 1970s. STAR provided food, clothing, and housing to transgender and non-gender conforming youth in NYC, one of the first organizations to advocate for and support this population. Thank you, Marsha for being a beacon of hope and a helping hand for those when so many turned a blind eye. We salute you for your tireless efforts to raise awareness and advocate for the rights of others. #knowyourhistory #blackhistorymonth #womenofcolor #transwoman #activist #endhomelessness #endaids #alliancehh ...
