RIVERSIDE - TruEvolution welcomed Harold Phillips, the Director of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy, to Riverside on Tuesday, June 14, for a historic visit showcasing the progress of Project Legacy – a groundbreaking Homekey Site that will provide transitional housing, healthcare, job training, and mental health wraparound services to young people with HIV experiencing homelessness.
“The Biden Administration is an ally for the LGBTQ+ community, including here in California, and that is underscored by Director Harold Phillips’ visit to Project Legacy in Riverside,” said Gabriel Maldonado, CEO of TruEvolution. “What we are doing is changing how we think about providing wraparound services for individuals experiencing homelessness, who are also HIV+ youth, and we’re doing that in the heart of the Inland Empire. We are excited to show the progress on our construction and to continue working until we open our doors next year.”
Harold Phillips has led the Office of National AIDS Policy since his appointment by President Joe Biden in June 2021.
"You’re doing work here that impacts individuals, their lives, their health - both mental and physical health - but you’re also transforming communities, with community development, economic development, housing, and healthcare. It’s really important as part of our work to end the HIV epidemic," said Harold Phillips.
