Who We Are
The Q Foundation was founded in 2004 as the AIDS Housing Alliance in San Francisco.
The foundation started with just $100, office space from the Housing Rights Committee, and a dream of a world where all people have a safe, decent, and affordable home. Since those tough beginnings, the foundation has worked to help thousands of people find housing and stay housed. President Barack Obama and Gavin Newsom have recognized our efforts, as well as a number of publications including the New York Times.
In 2019, the AHA/SF rebranded itself as The Q Foundation. The new name reflects the organization’s commitment to providing housing and support to all people who are marginalized and vulnerable, regardless of their HIV status. The Q Foundation continues to be a leading provider of housing and support services for people living with HIV/AIDS in San Francisco.
