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, in 1987, the FDA fast tracked the approval of AZT, the first antiviral medication used to treat HIV/AIDS. Today, we have over 41 drugs for providers to choose from and we now know that undetectable equals untransmittable (U=U).
Thanks to federal grant programs, access to these drugs is relatively easy once a patient is in care and understands the benefits of medication compliance.
Alliance for Housing and Healing has case managers on the streets everyday working to educate and offer assistance to homeless HIV individuals who are unaware of the services available to them or are ready to make a change. Today, with the right care, housing, and medication management, we can get new clients to undetectable status in an average of 30 days.
