Comedy Benefit for "AIDS Housing Association of Tacoma"
AIDS Housing Association of Tacoma (AHAT) provides more than just a safe place to live. Residents may come to AHAT in poor health, their spirits broken and their hopes dwindling. Upon arrival, our residents find that AHAT offers more then just a home. They find a place of refuge, a place of renewal, and the acceptance that we all need and deserve.
AIDS Housing Association of Tacoma (AHAT) was founded in 1989. With the assistance of members of Christ Church Episcopal of Tacoma and other community volunteers, a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation was formed to provide safe, alternative housing for people with HIV/AIDS in Pierce and Kitsap Counties. The church provided the house for one dollar per year until it was purchased in 2002. The community provides volunteers and donations; other financial support comes from city, state and federal grants.
AIDS Housing Association of Tacoma/Three Cedars has provided special needs-assisted living and housing for almost a hundred HIV/AIDS residents since we opened in June 1990. We remain the only facility of our type from King County to the Oregon border to offer housing and enriched services to HIV/AIDS residents. Today, almost two-thirds of our residents return to community living after stabilizing their health and achieving medical adherence.
Our Mission: "AIDS Housing Association of Tacoma provides a circle of caring for people living with HIV/AIDS, empowering them to stabilize their lives."
