In 1987, AIDS Interfaith Residential Services, Inc. (AIRS) was founded by the Central Maryland Ecumenical Council as the faith community's response to the AIDS epidemic. The first Don Miller House, which opened in 1988, served four men with end-stage AIDS. Through strategic planning and community support, AIRS has expanded its program to provide supportive housing to the most vulnerable populations throughout Baltimore City and County.
Empire Homes of Maryland, Inc. (EHM), a wholly owned subsidiary of AIRS, is a community housing development organization that builds and manages low-income housing in Maryland.
City Steps, the youth housing division of AIRS, is a consortium of programs serving homeless and unstably housed youth ages 14- 24. The services consists of a comprehensive array of housing and resources including transitional housing, permanent supportive housing, case management, life skills and workforce development.
Your support and contributions will enable us to surpass our goals and increase our service capacity throughout the region.
