Housing is healthcare. Housing results in improved health outcomes with the majority of people living with HIV/AIDS
Housing is prevention. With treatment, infectivity is reduced by 96%.
Housing is desperately needed. In Atlanta, about 3,000 housing units are needed for those affected by HIV. Our 160 units represent over 60% of the available permanent supportive HIV housing.
Success For Our Children
Jerusalem House is Atlanta’s oldest and largest provider of permanent housing for Atlanta’s low-income and homeless individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS. Nearly 100 children live in Jerusalem House programs. We provide them with the tools they need to succeed – like stable housing, tutoring, and school supplies.

How You Can Help
91 cents of every dollar donated to JH goes directly to fund our programs. We are working hard to compensate for the HOPWA funding cuts. You can help by making a cash donation or by donating an item to be used in our October raffle.
