The overall purpose of this study was to determine the level of knowledge of AIDS among formerly homeless mentally ill adults. Two constructs were addressed: (1) level of knowledge of AIDS by age, and (2) level of knowledge by race. A descriptive correlational study was conducted in this research. A questionnaire was administered to 30 individuals who are formerly homeless mentally ill adults living in a residential community. The findings of this research indicate that adults between the ages of 46 and over were more knowledgeable than other age groups; and white participants were more knowledgeable than other ethnic groups.
