About Us

Housing is Healthcare

People impacted by HIV/AIDS deserve to more than survive, but to fully live

Established in 1988, we are Atlanta’s oldest and largest provider of permanent housing for low-income and homeless individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS. Status: Home provides a continuum of housing options, healthcare resources, and supportive services that contribute to a resident’s overall self-sufficiency.

Housing is Healthcare

Home is a bright light when all is dark

Via staff and community partners, Status: Home provides wrap-around services to individuals in all of our housing programs, including case management, linkage to HIV care, employment services, mental health services, and legal services.

Our clients are referred to us via Hope Atlanta or other organizations in Atlanta’s Coordinated Entry System.

Facilities-based Housing

Our Facilities-Based Housing serves single adults in efficiency apartments. Residents have on-site access to support staff, and services including case management and medical care coordination. Our current facility is dedicated to single adults living with AIDS who require more concentrated care.

Master-lease Housing

Our master-lease housing provides autonomous, independent living solutions in subsidized rental units throughout Atlanta to individuals and families.

Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA)

We help families and individuals who are able to hold a lease in their name maintain their housing by providing monthly rental subsidies for 12 – 24 months.

From One Into Hundreds of Homes in Atlanta

Discover our history and evolution over 35 years

What is today Status: Home originated as Jerusalem House, and began in 1988 as a coalition of Atlanta’s business, religious, civic, and medical community leaders who conceptualized a residential facility for the growing number of people who’d lost their homes due to AIDS. In 1989, Status: Home was one house that could serve five individuals with HIV/AIDS.

Today, with nearly 250 housing units and counting, we provide homes for almost 300 residents, including nearly 100 children, and we’re responsible for more than 70% of Atlanta’s permanent supportive housing for individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS.
