Founded in 1988, the mission of Gregory House Programs is to provide affordable housing assistance and support services to our Hawaii community's most vulnerable individuals and families, with a focus on persons living with HIV/AIDS. Gregory House Programs is the premier housing provider for PLWH (Perosns Living with HIV) on Oahu operating two (2) transitional housing facilities and the Save The Foodbasket program; and the only Statewide HIV/AIDS housing program. While our programs are open to all those in need, we have a focus on PLWH (Persons Living With HIV). Stable, permanent housing is essential to long term survival with HIV. Without housing, it is difficult for PLWH to access continuous primary medical care, adhere to a medications regimen, maintain proper nutrition, and access other support. Housing for PLWH reduces morbidity rates, improves health outcomes, extends life expectancy, and reduces legal issues and usage of emergency services. Gregory House Programs provides transitional housing, rental assistance, emergency housing, case mangement and food bank services.
