Rafiki’s Brandy Moore House (BMH) is a supportive housing program that provides transitional and case management services for very low-income African Americans who are HIV-positive/AIDS diagnosed, sober from substance use/abuse and are homeless as defined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban development (HUD). BMH participants are provided with housing, wellness services, and case management in a communal residential experience for six months at a time with an option for another six-month extension. Brandy Moore House (BMH) is operated by the Rafiki Coalition for Health and Wellness, a local San Francisco non-profit health and wellness organization.

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is a medicine taken daily that can be used to prevent HIV infection. It is for people without HIV who are at very high risk of contracting it from sex or injection drug use.

Brandy Moore House Services

All BMH services are available to transitional housing residents and are designed to meet their specific needs.


BMH is proud to offer Wellness services such as the Adrian Tyler Fitness Center, courtesy of CARES funds from the Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development. Named after the former Director of Development and Communications who was instrumental in securing funds for Rafiki Coalition, this center provides much needed services and programming for the Black, HIV+, homeless, and marginalized communities of San Francisco.
