House of Ruth

A Louisville HIV/Aids Community Resource

House of Ruth provides housing and support services for people with HIV/AIDS and their families who are homeless, at risk of losing their homes, or need financial help.  We do this through a continuum of services:  emergency shelter, short and long-term housing, mental health counseling, advocacy for clients, and basic needs assistance to provide food, rent, utilities, public transportation, and back-to-school support.

Shout Out to Gloria

Gloria moved into assisted living where she can get the care and attention she needs to thrive. Her case manager helped her secure this housing so she could move out of her apartment where she was not doing well and was unable to take care of herself.

Congratulations to Anthony!
