Alliance for Housing and Healing is a non-profit organization founded 35 years ago with a mission to mitigate the interrelated problems of homelessness and chronic diseases like HIV/AIDS.

With an annual budget of $12M, we provide direct housing to chronically homeless persons and their families living with HIV/AIDS; connect homeless patients experiencing high barriers to acuity with permanent supportive housing and other wraparound services; and increase client access to care and support.  By reducing chronic homelessness, we reduce HIV/AIDS viral loads and eliminate the disease for the next generation.
