This is the second largest entity we work with.
SAVE, Inc. is a community assistance agency which believes that housing is a basic human right. When the agency began, they were an 8 bed hospice facility during the height of the AIDS crisis; for over 35 years now they have been finding permanent, transitional and emergency housing assistance for Kansas City residents in need; each year, they help nearly 2,000 individuals.
They are partially federally funded, but also utilize grants, and donations for funding.
The arm we work with is voucher based. For a person to receive a voucher from Save, Inc. they must have either a diagnosis of HIV/AIDS, mental illness, or a substance abuse disorder.
