Volunteer Spotlight: Cynthia
July 25, 2017

Our mission to end homelessness for people living with HIV is an ambitious one. But it’s possible—especially with the help of volunteers like Cynthia. In order to guarantee our clients’ confidentiality, Cynthia is one of the few volunteers who helps directly with our programs. Her work allows Living Room to continue to provide the highest […]

For Living Room, 2016 was a year of growth and positive changes. We saw impressive gains in reducing barriers to housing access for our clients. This means we were able to help more people achieve housing stability—and more quickly! We also expanded our capacity in all programs last year. As a result, Living Room assisted […]

“What’s good?” That’s the phrase you’re likely to hear when greeted by LaMar Yarborough. Although I’ve known him for about 2 years, it was only until recently I noticed that he continually invites a special kind of optimism into the space by starting conversations this way. At only 25 years old, the breadth of experiences […]

The South holds the highest rates of people living with HIV and new diagnoses of HIV/AIDS than any other U.S. region.

In partnership with Mailchimp, Living Room has created a matchmaking tool on our website to help route and connect clients to the program that best suits their situation and need.

How many acronyms do you have to juggle for work? How about for keeping up with current events? Yeah, it’s a lot. But humor me, if you will, and make room for just one more acronym that’s really important to Living Room. It’s called SNHAP, which stands for Special Needs Housing Assistance Program. The History of […]

Staff Spotlight: Tedra
May 15, 2017

If you’ve ever visited Living Room’s program offices, chances are you’ve been greeted with Tedra’s million-dollar smile. As the Program Support Specialist, she is the organization’s primary contact for clients reaching out to and visiting Living Room for the first time. But make no mistake: Tedra is not a receptionist. She is so much more. I […]

Georgia’s First: An AIDS Comedy
May 2, 2017

It’s not often you’ll hear a movie about HIV/AIDS labeled a “comedy.” But this post is here to change all that. Last night, Living Room and Out on Film cohosted Georgia’s premiere screening of Pushing Dead, a film with over 15 years of development under its belt. In an interview with Atlanta’s own WABE City Lights with […]
