We offer permanent scattered site housing for formerly homeless persons living with HIV/AIDS to help residents stabilize their lives; assist them in securing entitlements and in referring them to needed services to live as independently as possible. Referrals are also made for medical and psychological care and for substance abuse counseling. Recreational and social activities are afforded to create community and social activities. Through our Permanent and Supportive Housing Programs, up to 254 formerly homeless single persons and families are served in Scatter Site apartments located throughout the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.
