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.

Ty is Excited For His New Home


We are so happy for Ty and his mother, Simone. They lost their housing during the pandemic and had to move quickly. We were able to provide a hotel voucher until a long-term housing unit was available. They recently moved into their new home and Ty was so excited to share the news with everyone.

Nights at Grandma’s are Back

After months of couch surfing Bettie ended up in a shelter with no idea of where to go next. She was referred to House of Ruth and worked with our case managers to find a stable place to call home.
Her greatest joy is having a safe place for her grandkids to come visit. Nothing is more fun than a sleepover with grandma.
