Russell, MSW Telephone: (205) ext Project Period: 9/97-9/00 Target Population: Homeless, multiply diagnosed persons who have HIV/AIDS in central Alabama Description: AIDS Alabama s JASPER House is a 16-person, continuous care facility for persons with HIV, mental health and substance use issues, who cannot live independently. JASPER House will provide nurses, a social worker, resident advocates, a cook, and many on-site services to address the needs of multiply diagnosed residents. This project began as an attempt to fill a gap in Alabama's continuum of care, which did not adequately serve the most needy HIV-positive homeless individuals. J = John A= Allen S = Steven P = Pauline E = Earl R = Ron The name of the home is in honor of these six people early AIDS Alabama clients who died premature deaths due to a lack of adequate supervised housing. During the three years of attempting to develop and build JASPER House, the agency has encountered numerous conflicts and delays with site control, city ordinances, neighborhood opposition and lack of support or funding on a local level, despite a 10-year history of providing AIDS housing. JASPER House construction is scheduled to begin in September 2000, with an opening date of January Baltimore City Office of Homeless Services HOPE Project Grantee: Baltimore Office of Homeless Services Lead agency: Health Education Resource Organization (HERO) The Maryland Community Resource Center 1734 Maryland Avenue Baltimore, MD Project Director: Indira Kotval, HERO Telephone: (410) Project Period: 1/98-12/00 Target Population: Multiply diagnosed, homeless, HIV-positive individuals in Baltimore City and county Description: An estimated 80 percent of the 2,900 persons with AIDS and the 38,000 infected with HIV in the Baltimore EMA live in poverty. Most are African American. Thirty percent are women and 75 percent have a history of substance abuse. Fifteen percent of this population also suffers from mental illness. The goal of the HOPE project is the coordinated provision of services at a community center to help stabilize and transition the homeless into stable living situations. The Resource Center is located at HERO, a community-based AIDS agency, with facilities targeted to the homeless, including meals, child care, support groups, voice mail, lockers, showers and laundry facilities. Human services including medical, mental health care and substance abuse counseling are provided by a network of different AIDS providers located at the Center. Housing counselors and case managers help the clients with locating housing and providing the support to help these individuals remain in housing. Vocational training assists with

2 preparing those who are well enough to return to work. Emergency transitional housing for the medically fragile is provided by Project Phase that serves up to 75 persons per year, for a period of one to three months depending on their medical condition. The clients are referred there by the housing counselors and other HOPE staff located at the Resource Center. It is anticipated that seven hundred persons will be assisted by the end of the project period. These activities address unmet needs specified in the metropolitan area's 10-year strategic HIV housing plan for greater Baltimore. Bernal Heights Housing Corporation Positive MATCH (Mothers and Their Children with HIV) 3266 Sacramento Street San Francisco, CA Project Director and Contact Person: Kathleen Manthe Telephone: (415) Project Period: 10/96 09/00 Target Population: Homeless families with dependent children living with HIV/AIDS and who are impacted directly by substance abuse and/or mental illness Description: One-third of the 3,200 people with HIV/AIDS on a centralized housing wait list in San Francisco can expect to wait two years for housing subsidies. The shortage is acute for homeless women and children living with HIV, as there has been only one nine-unit facility available. HOTS aids 45 families, about 95 adults and 120 children. The program allows acquisition of four units of permanent, supportive housing for service recipients. It also provides a one-stop, integrated case management service delivery system that includes mental health and substance abuse services, AIDS care, and supportive and children s services. A child-centered approach focuses on the needs of the entire family prior to and after the death of a family member. A long-term plan for child placement after guardian s death begins in advance of the crisis. The project runs an aftercare program for children and guardians, and conducts educational forum on health issues, skill development, domestic violence, and parenting. An additional 900 clients and 30 agencies receive related outreach and educational services. Catholic Community Services Operation Link 619 Grove Street Jersey City, NJ Project Director: Christian Carroll Project Evaluator: Elaine V. Cohen Telephone: (201) or Project Period: 2/97 1/00 Target Population: Homeless persons with HIV/AIDS and mental illness and/or substance abuse Description: Although local homeless service providers have reported an increase in the need for health, housing and social services by mentally ill and HIV-positive homeless persons, there is no integrated health and housing model to provide these services. Operation Link is a specialized emergency shelter in Jersey City, New Jersey for homeless persons with HIV/AIDS who are multiply diagnosed with mental illness and/or substance abuse problems. With a goal of progressive engagement through a highly supportive low- demand environment, Link offers a 24/7 shelter with support services designed to link a traditionally underserved and hard-to-serve homeless population with a wide range of community services. Among its innovations is the use of peer counselors to engage and support clients in their efforts at change. The support helps clients navigate the social service system and achieve a more stable, healthy and independent lifestyle.

3 Catholic Community Services Canaan House 3040 Kennedy Blvd. Jersey City, NJ Telephone: (201) Fax: (201) Project Director: Elizabeth Patterson Project Period: 11/97-1/01 Target Population: HIV-positive, multiply diagnosed adults who are physically and psychologically ready for supportive, permanent housing Description: Among the many unmet needs of people with AIDS in Hudson County, none is felt more urgently than the need for permanent housing. This is especially true for homeless people living with HIV/AIDS who are in treatment for severe, persistent mental illness and/or addictions. In response to this need for housing and services, Catholic Community Services has developed Canaan House, a permanent supported independent living facility that will serve up to 10 men and women in the Jersey City, New Jersey area who are members of this vulnerable, multiply diagnosed population. When it opens it doors in 2001, Canaan House will provide its residents with housing and supportive services in a nine-unit apartment building. Each unit will have a full bath, efficiency kitchen and elevator access. A communal meeting room, client and program storage space and a program office will be located on the ground level. Maintenance services will be provided to the building. Supportive services to be provided include on-site residential coordinators (who will be accessible on a 24/7 basis), a tenant s group and transportation. Catholic Community Services anticipates that the provision of stable housing and supportive services will have a positive impact on each client s physical health, thus allowing each client to live in the community as independently as possible for as long as possible.

This mini-continuum provides coordinated outreach, emergency shelter placement, and referral to three new transitional housing sites, one each for single adult females, males, and families, and each with 24-hour coverage. A Bridge Fund that provides security deposits, short-term subsidies, and money for basic furnishings and moving expenses helps facilitate the transition to independent living. Project sponsors and CARC help access permanent scattered site or congregate supportive housing programs. Project funds support a project director and four case managers that include specialists in mental health services, substance abuse services, vocational services, and child/youth advocacy. Each case manager is cross-trained in HIV/AIDS, mental health, substance abuse, and issues regarding homelessness. Program participants who are ready for competitive employment are referred to local workforce development initiatives and welfare-to-work programs. *At the time of this presentation in Washington DC, Marinel Reyes-Medina, LCSW was Project Director and Stan demello Principal Investigator. Health Care for the Homeless, Inc. Diamond Project 111 Park Avenue Baltimore, MD Project Director: Laura M. Gillis, MS, RN Project Period: 10/96 09/01 Target Population: Homeless individuals in Baltimore City with HIV and substance abuse and/or mental illness Description: An estimated 25,000 homeless people, predominantly from cultural and ethnic minorities, seek shelter each year in Baltimore. About 1,800 of them are HIV positive and are also mentally ill and/or substance abusers. Due to their multiple problems, many of these individuals have difficulty accessing existing services. The Diamond Project concentrates on their needs. It augments existing services in order to facilitate access to comprehensive primary care, support services, and housing for 300 clients. It utilizes a multi-disciplinary approach that begins on the streets and continues until a client is housed. Two outreach teams, consisting of a peer leader (a former homeless person), a registered nurse and an addictions counselor, engage homeless people living on the street. From there they facilitate entry into on-site primary medical care; case management; substance abuse and mental health services; health education; and assistance with entitlements, transportation, and housing.

Ja Telephone: (415) Research Associate: Mary Gee Telephone: (650) Project Period: 10/96 9/01 Target Population: Homeless single adults living with HIV/AIDS who are substance users and/or mentally ill, and who either have no stable income or receive general assistance only Description: The Bridge Project offers transitional program that provides rental assistance and integrated services for up to 24 months in a residential hotel setting. The project is based in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco, and represents a collaboration of six agencies. The program is intended to serve people who have a long history of instability and who have either been unable to access, or are alienated by existing service systems. By combining stable shelter with on-site services, the program offers chronically homeless individuals the opportunity to improve their health and well being, while addressing issues that have contributed to their homelessness. Incorporating a philosophy of harm reduction, the program strives to eliminate barriers that often prevent individuals who are active substance users from accessing stable shelter and essential services. Clients in the program pay 30 percent of their income for rent. Staff from the collaborating agencies function as a multidisciplinary team, and are available onsite at the hotels to provide a range of services which includes: primary medical care, home nursing services, mental health services, substance-use management counseling, case management, benefits advocacy, nutrition counseling, support groups, and health education.
