Rent, Utilities, Food, Transportation Assistance
Many individuals living with HIV/AIDS are on the margins of economic survival. Underemployment, unemployment, poverty, limited access to health care, homelessness, chemical dependency, and a myriad of other challenges plague them. These vulnerabilities create serious quality of life challenges. In addition, approximately 10% of those seeking services are undocumented and do not qualify for public assistance programs.
MAP provides clients with rental housing assistance and move-in costs fromfunds provided by public funding. Client’s who cannot qualify; because they are not city residents receive emergency cash assistance and/or utility payments via donations of unrestricted dollars. Clients may access the Food Pantry to supplement their inadequate food supply. For clients who need assistance with transportation, taxi coupons, bus passes and tokens are available.
