31 Central Georgians fighting HIV and/or the AIDs virus will soon have a new place to call home.
River Edge Behavioral Health Center is partnering with Georgia's Department of Community Affairs to provide transitional housing for those who qualify.
River edge CEO Shannon Harvey says her organization is happy to help draw outside sources to Macon to help local HIV patients.
Funding for the effort comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
As part of the agreement, River Edge will also provide case management, meals, support groups and training.
