Cape Regional Housing Initiative and Housing First Voucher Programs
A range of housing options are available specifically to people living with HIV/AIDS including a total of 35 permanent supportive housing vouchers, congregate and scattered site housing units throughout Cape Cod and the Islands funded through the following U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Shelter Plus Care programs.
The Foley House was created in the mid-1990’s to address homelessness for people living with HIV/AIDS. This 10-unit congregate housing program is a joint partnership with the Provincetown Housing Authority (PHA) and ASGCC. The PHA owns the building however ASGCC provides staff to oversee day to day operation. The primary eligibility criteria is homelessness. Residents also have an HIV-diagnosis and must be willing to live cooperatively within a congregate and harm reduction living situation. While the units are almost always fully occupied we do maintain a wait-list.
