Please Help, I am looking for housing for women with HIV, I am currently living in Illinois but I am willing to sell my car and move anywhere I can receive good care. The resources here are slim and most of the places are not clean. I need somewhere safe and clean where I can take my meds and stay healthy as possible.

Hey Scoop-

I know there is one in Worcester, Mass but I just tried searching it and it didn't show up. I can call my ASO after the holiday if you need me too?

Good luck!

One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

One thing you can't recycle is wasted time.

I am SUPER new to this, but I am going to my nearest Family Services for help. It is not even in my county but it is closest. They have been quick to get me help. I am without healthcare and on unemployment.
    I am pretty sure that they can help you. I was homeless for a couple years in the late '80s so I am rooting for you. There are family services in every county in the U.S.-I think. Some just get overwhelmed, while other family services offices get few. You may want to go to a Family services in another county.  May you find help and treatment and live long and well.
