Since 1988, the Emergency Project has helped prevent homelessness for low income New Mexicans living with HIV/AIDS. On a “last resort” basis, the program provides financial assistance to help cover unforeseen expenses that could otherwise disrupt a person’s basic necessities of life. For example, the possibility of falling behind with housing, utilities, medicine, or repairs can all become problematic at times – especially to those without a solid support network. Without assistance, the risk of homelessness can become an issue.
Emergency Project payments allow clients to maintain a stable home and to prevent additional complications from HIV/AIDS by making medical and prescription co-payments for required medical regimens.
