ActionAIDS in partnership with Pathways to Housing-PA, developed the Philadelphia Harbor Project, to provide permanent supportive housing for people with a diagnosis of HIV/ AIDS and who experience multiple barriers to achieve stable housing. The project is based on the “housing first” model. Harbor Project is for homeless single adults living with HIV/AIDS and mental illness and/or substance abuse. This project began on April 1, 2012. Pathways to Housing, holds the master lease for 20 rental apartments in Philadelphia. ActionAIDS administers the financial aspects of the program. The HIV medical case manager works as part of a team of workers at Pathways to Housing. The team consists of a psychiatrist, nurse, three master’s-level service coordinators, two bachelor-level case managers, and a program assistant.

Learning Objectives:

  • Increase knowledge of the Housing First model.
  • Describe how various psychosocial issues create barriers for people living with HIV/AIDS.
  • Illustrate how supportive housing impacts people living with HIV/AIDS.
