Having a stable living environment plays a major role in the health of people, including those with HIV.
The Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) program is a federally-funded initiative that helps people maintain stable housing, and have access to treatment and support services — which can all lead to better health.
In Florida, eleven regional agencies and six cities deliver HOPWA-funded housing services. If you need assistance to remain in your current housing or obtain new housing, have a conversation with your local HOPWA provider agency to find out if they can help you. In addition to the state HOPWA program, there are six city HOPWA programs administered locally.
