Purpose

The purpose of the SURE Housing initiative is to implement and adapt housing-related intervention strategies for three priority populations of people with HIV experiencing unstable housing, who often have the highest HIV-related disparities:

  1. people how identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer or questioning (LGBTQ+);
  2. youth and young adults (aged 18-24); and
  3. people who have been justice-involved (defined as any person who is engaged at any point along the continuum of the criminal justice system as a defendant including arrest, incarceration, and community supervision).

The goal of this initiative is to promote the replication of effective housing interventions in the RWHAP to decrease health and housing disparities and improve health outcomes along the HIV care continuum. This initiative will engage and retain people with HIV experiencing unstable housing in HIV medical care and support services by addressing their housing and behavioral health needs, as needed.
