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.
