AFH offers permanent housing programs to provide safe affordable living and supportive services to individuals and families impacted by HIV. To engage individuals in developing a stable, healthy and productive future, all AFH housing programs provide intensive case management, community and social support. Our comprehensive service model includes creating individualized plans to address financial stability, family issues, basic needs, mental health and substance abuse treatment and how to link to needed medical and social services.
The Hollyfield Foundation generously supports AFH housing programs.
