Roosevelt Gardens and Highland Terrace are transitional housing programs for people living with HIV and AIDS. Experienced social workers help residents apply for permanent housing and achieve their personal goals.
NO ONE IS TURNED AWAY FOR INABILITY TO PAY
Roosevelt Gardens opened in 1995 as a special care facility with 24-hour caregiver support. As new medications began to successfully suppress HIV and residents’ health began to improve, the need for health care support decreased. Roosevelt Gardens became a transitional housing program. Project Transitions opened Highland Terrace in 1998 and in 2003 introduced the Community Housing program to respond to an increase in need for transitional housing.
