Mission & Vision
Bailey House’s mission is to help transform the lives of people with or at risk of HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses through housing, health services and community. We believe that housing and healthcare are human rights. We work towards a world without poverty, homelessness, hunger, HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses.
Founded in 1983 by a coalition of compassionate community leaders responding to the AIDS crisis, Bailey House is a community-based organization with a 36-year history of addressing poverty, homelessness, food insecurity, mental health, substance use and chronic illness to improve health outcomes for marginalized, low-income New Yorkers. Today, we provide nearly 700 units of housing for men, women, young adults and families – most of whom are living with or affected by HIV/AIDS - and have over 250 additional units of congregate housing in development.
Bailey House and Housing Works
In January 2019, Bailey House merged with Housing Works, the nation’s leading HIV/AIDS advocacy and service organization. This important union creates a powerful new housing development enterprise under the Bailey House name, dedicated to offering clients with an array of expanded service offerings, including primary medical care. The merger brings renewed focus and commitment to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic in New York by 2020. The annual Gala & Auction will remain a centerpiece of the ongoing, year-round fundraising activities benefitting Bailey House housing programs. Bailey House maintains its own corporate identity, Board of Directors, and independent operations.
