(NHHR) is a private, section 501(c) 3 nonprofit, community-based, multi-service agency that has served the needs of families throughout the New Haven area for over 20 years. NHHR’s first supportive housing initiative was created in response to the realization that many of the women in the CareWays Shelter, who were diagnosed with AIDS, were in need of affordable housing and medical care. In response to community needs, NHHR located a property and secured the funding to develop the first supportive housing project for 8 families with HIV/AIDS. <br /> <br />The agency vision includes exploring opportunities to develop housing and services for families. NHHR currently owns and operates two length of stay homeless shelters for single women and women with children; administers and supports over 80 leased, scattered site units of supportive housing; and owns 25 units of family supportive housing. In addition, NHHR provides housing location services, clinical assessment/treatment, housing advocacy, and intensive in-home case management. <br />
