OUR PHILANTHROPIC EFFORTS
Casa del Sol
Casa del Sol is a joint project between AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA) and CSW to provide low-income housing and support services to people living with HIV/AIDS.
CSW purchased the Hollywood property in 1988, and after navigating bureaucratic issues and renovation needs for years, it finally opened its doors in 1993. The existence of Casa del Sol was groundbreaking as the first low-income housing project for people with HIV/AIDS to receive HUD funding. This arrangement set a precedent for other independent living programs for persons with HIV/AIDS.
Today, APLA occupies and manages the property, and continues to provide ongoing tenant advocacy and support.
