ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the efforts to rebuild temporary housing facilities for people with HIV/AIDS in Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina ravage the Gulf Coast in October 2005. The South Mississippi AIDS Task Force have been obtaining a variety of other types of assistance for the people it serves, including the money for co-payments on medications and gas for transportation to doctor's appointments. A broader group in Hattiesburg has been canvassing shelters in nearby counties and rural areas to ensure that patients have access to medication and other basic necessities. For years the largely rural state has suffered a severe shortage of resources for its GLBT citizens and people with HIV/AIDS. In fact, there are only three transitional housing residences in the entire state for those with HIV/AIDS.
