According to the National Coalition for the HomelessHIV/AIDS and homelessness are intricately related.  The costs of health care and medications for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) are often too high for people to keep up with.  In addition, PLWHA are in danger of losing their jobs due to discrimination or as a result of frequent health-related absences.  As a result, up to 50% of PLWHA in the United States are at risk of becoming homeless.

There is no need to RSVP for this event, please just show up ready to learn!

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) invites you to attend a panel discussion on how recovery happens even for people who have spent most of their lives without housing.

  • Motivational Interviewing and techniques to meet people where they are.
  • How to apply harm reduction principles with Housing First through crisis housing.
  • Housing individuals with active substance abuse and psychiatric conditions.
  • Collaborations that can improve housing stability and whole health.
