People living with HIV/AIDS who have very low incomes often find themselves in need of stable, affordable housing. Their ability to maintain their health is dependent on a having a safe and stable home environment.
CCIH started its HIV/AIDS Housing Advocacy Program in 2012 when the county was seeking a new provider for this service. The program is part of a larger medical case management and support service offered by the County’s HIV/AIDS Program. CCIH’s Housing Advocacy Program assists vulnerable residents throughout Contra Costa County to find and keep affordable and decent housing. Referrals for this program come directly from the county’s HIV/AIDS case management team.
