Our residential housing will offer supportive housing (up to 24 months) which will allow women, men and families to obtain stability and the opportunity to acquire counseling services, crisis intervention, education and case management through, AIDS’ Service Organization, Domestic Violence Organizations and the Veterans Administration.
According to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, many women Veterans face challenges when returning to civilian life that are different from those of their male counterparts, including raising children on their own or dealing with the psychological after effects of events such as military sexual trauma. These issues, without intervention, can put women Veterans at greater risk of becoming homeless.
Access to housing is an important precursor to getting many people into a stable treatment HIV care regimen. People who have barriers to regular care are less likely to receive optimal antiretroviral therapy. Both women and men with HIV can be at risk for partner violence, which can affect adherence and stability in addressing necessary health care requirements. This housing will allow for the treatment of special emotional and mental needs, safety, and counseling for persons who are at an increased level of violence and danger once separated from their batterers.
