Nevada: Complex Caters to HIV/AIDS Patients, Makes Living Affordable
August 15, 2011
On Aug. 10, the nonprofit Aid for AIDS of Nevada hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on a renovated, affordable development for low-income Nevadans living with HIV. Approximately 20 tenants "can't wait" to move in, said Jennifer Morss, AFAN's executive director.
The development includes a clubhouse as well as eight single-bedroom cottages and three dormitory-like pods with four bedrooms each. The renovated spaces have been painted warm colors and outfitted with new granite countertops and furniture donated by World Market Center. The project revives a property abandoned a year-and-a-half ago by its previous landlord.
