SAVE, Inc. was founded in 1986 as the first 24-hour hospice care facility in Missouri for individuals dying from AIDS. It is the sole provider of specialized housing for those diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in the bi-state, Kansas City metropolitan region.
A world free of homelessness and discrimination in housing.
During the coming year as new initiatives and strategic plan goals are solidified and put into place, SAVE, Inc. will strive to reach more individuals in need, and empower and change the lives of those we serve.
Alhaven: Opening in 2020
Alhaven, a new 50-unit affordable, permanent-supportive housing community will be built in Midtown Kansas City near 31st and Harrison Streets, one block west of the Troost Corridor.
This new community will be a single, four-story building with 50 housing units; 12 studio apartments, 27, one-bedroom apartments and 11, two-bedroom apartments, each complete with a kitchen, washer, and dryer. 25% of units will be set aside for young adults, ages 18-25 that have a diagnosis of HIV or AIDS.
What began more than 30 years ago as a mere 8-bedroom hospice has since expanded to include 66 units in seven residential buildings, and to providing housing and housing solutions to over 900 households every month in 15 counties on both sides of the state line. Because of these efforts, we have become the largest processor of tenant-based rental assistance vouchers in Missouri.
