Imani Park Transitional Housing ProgramImani Park Transitional Housing Program is a 16-unit facility that provides housing and support services specifically geared toward the needs of homeless individuals and families where one member is living with HIV/AIDS. Situated on 10 acres of federal surplus property at Camp Kilmer in Edison. Imani Park consists of one, two, and three bedroon apartments, classrooms, a community room, laundry facilities, and staff offices. A transitional housing program that provides a full spectrum of services, as well as safe, clean apartments, is critical to persons living with HIV/AIDS, especially those who have been living on the street, in crowded shelters, or in a welfare motel. It is the role of a transitional housing program to provide a meaningful, viable alternative to this kind of life, to provide a home to a person or family facing AIDS, and to give people the compassionate support they need. By developing a transitional housing program for homeless people living with HIV/AIDS, MIPH will address the dual issues of homelessness and AIDS. The minimum age to be eligible for the program is 17. Each family lives up to twelve months in a fully furnished apartment with kitchen and bath. Near the completion of their stay, residents work with the staff to locate safe, decent, affordable housing.
