This year, HUD celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) Program. Each year, HOPWA provides housing or supportive services to more than 100,000 households.

HUD wants to hear from the community on how HOPWA has helped individuals living with HIV/AIDS achieve and maintain viral suppression. Do you know someone who has benefited from HOPWA services? Share a story from your community with HUD so they can better demonstrate the value of the program.

Please submit your responses to hopwa@hud.gov with the subject line, “HOPWA’s Impact on Viral Suppression,” and be sure to remove any personally identifiable information.

HEAD START AND HOMELESSNESS
8c143745-a9c3-41fc-8bfe-f199638ae6a7.png
A new research brief from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services examines enrollment in the Head Start program and the services provided to children and families living doubled up or in shelter.

The brief shows that Head Start agencies use a number of different strategies to improve enrollment of eligible children, including having Head Start staff recruit in shelters and collaborating with homeless education liaisons. Head Start staff also help families find temporary housing and link them with supportive services.

While previous research indicates that the participation rates of homeless children in Head Start is similar to that of poor, stably housed children, only a small fraction of eligible children receive the valuable services Head Start can provide.
