A set reset latch will do just what you are asking for. You can build your
own with cross coupled Nand gates or you can plop down a ready made one.
The 74LV00 is a 3.3v quad Nand in a 14 pin DIP. With this you can make 2
S-R latch's.

Digikey has the  74LVC574 available for $0.59 each in 20 pin DIP which gets
you 8 of them in a pack.
