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.

Unlocking Hope

Way to Go Lana

Used as Lana

We are so proud of Lana. After using House of Ruth services to stabilize her living situation, she found a job. Not just any job though. She is a Peer Educator at an HIV/AIDS services agency. Lana is helping other people gain the stability she worked so hard for.

Mark Hit a Milestone

Used for John

Congratulations and continued success to Mark. He just celebrated 2 months sober. This is the longest he has maintained his sobriety since he was 13; he is now in his 40’s. Mark has put in a lot of hard work to reach this point, and Glade House staff have been by his side each step.
