About Living Room

Since our inception, we have made an impact in the community by helping clients locate and maintain affordable and supportive housing, as well as equipping clients with the tools and skills they need to not only survive and improve their health, but to move forward independently and never have to experience homelessness again. More than 90 percent of Living Room's clients are defined as "extremely low income," so finding and maintaining affordable housing is essential to preventing homelessness.

Our organization is one of Georgia's largest facilitators of emergency and permanent housing for people living with HIV/AIDS. Living Room serves both the 29-county Atlanta metropolitan area and the 11-county Northwest Georgia region surrounding Rome and Dalton. Because we serve as Atlanta's centralized intake and housing information and referral agency, we are able to assist more than 1,300 individuals each year and help them achieve life-long self-sufficiency.

Programs & Services

Centralized Intake

Through our comprehensive network of resources and partners, we assist and receive all HIV-supportive housing applications in the region and connect clients to the exact services they need.

Housing Counseling

A client seeking housing can meet with a housing specialist who will identify appropriate housing options. Through our collaborations, we are able to link clients to housing options.

Permanent Housing Placement

For a client who has located a new residence and needs assistance with the move-in costs, we will help by paying first month's rent, initial program fees, and utility deposits.

Rent, Mortgage, & Utility Assistance

We provide one-time payments of rent, mortgage, or utilities to assist someone who has fallen behind financially due to illness, loss of work, or medically necessary costs.

Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA)

We provide monthly rental subsidies to households who are rent burdened-paying more than 30% of income. Living Room provides in-home case management to help clients focus on ways to maintain current housing by increasing income or locating more affordable housing options if the household is on a fixed income.

Recuperative Care

For individuals facing homelessness after a hospital admission, Living Room provides a 60-day stay in a care facility. Living Room pays the program costs for the client and also provides intensive case management to assist in locating stable housing and securing other benefits and resources.

Emergency Lodging

Living Room is the only agency in Georgia that offers same day housing options to an individual or family who is homeless and living with HIV. Clients are assessed, placed in shelter that night, and provided ongoing intensive case management.

Special Needs Housing Assistance Program (SNHAP)

Living Room pays a monthly subsidy for the clients who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless and also struggle with mental illness, recovery from addictions, or discrimination based on gender identity are provided housing with a specialized provider in the community.
