New Housing for HIV/AIDS Patients

AIR DATE: August 31, 2011

A local nonprofit finally opened the doors to a new housing complex for HIV/AIDS patients.  The renovated development provides subsidized rent for those struggling with medical bills.  The interior designer, whose son died of complications from HIV, aimed to make the complex warm and inviting.  We talk to some of the complex's newest residents and the people who helped make it a reality.
