Description/Abstract

"The notion of a beneficial community is the primary concern in the creation of a program to provide housing and health care for people with AIDS (PWA). The program will provide long term housing for PWA as well as hospice care during the time of their dying.

Given the fact that the disease strikes without prejudice at all levels of society, not discriminating upon race, age or gender and that the victims tend to be concentrated within dense urban condition, the program will be located in a mixed socio-economic, residential, urban neighborhood: Boston's South End."
