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.
What began with our first six-bed hospice facility, SAVE Home, we have now expanded into a thriving organization operating seven properties, which include 66 units of housing for transitional and permanent purposes. We are proud to say that SAVE, Inc. has invested more than $3M dollars in capital improvements in Kansas City, Missouri, successfully combining affordable housing development with urban revitalization.
Having housing has taken away many worries. Living on the streets is hard. My mental health has improved. I’m back to being a happy camper now. I also feel more whole. I feel like a person now, not a machine or a number.
