House of Ruth is an association of persons caring for men, women and families affected by HIV/AIDS.
HIV/AIDS has the ability to shatter not only the lives of individuals, but also their families. Such destruction impacts the entire community. Many HIV/AIDS-infected/ affected individuals often feel lonely, isolated, desperate and hopeless. Through a variety of services and programs, House of Ruth helps alleviate these feelings by mending the shattered lives and offering hope and a helping hand.
House of Ruth owns seventeen scattered-site permanent housing rental units. The housing programs give approximately eighty clients the opportunity for safe, affordable housing through subsidized rent and intense case management.
The Children’s Program at House of Ruth provides extensive services for children (ages 0-17 or in High School) both infected with and affected by HIV and AIDS.
House of Ruth offers gently used clothing to clients free of charge. One for All donates all off season clothing to House of Ruth for its use.
