Albany, Washington D.C., Haiti and Puerto Rico, Housing Works fights for funding and legislation to ensure that all people living with HIV/AIDS have access to quality housing, healthcare, HIV prevention information and other life-sustaining services, as well as legal protections from stigma and discrimination.
We are a grassroots organization committed to the use of non-violent civil disobedience in order to further our mission.
Since 1990, we have provided a comprehensive array of services to more than 30,000 homeless and low-income New Yorkers living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. We believe that providing stable housing is healthcare and is the first step toward living a long and healthy life.
Supportive services include but are not limited to housing, healthcare, meals and nutritional counseling, mental health and substance use treatment, job training, and legal assistance.

This self-sustaining model provides employment opportunities to the community in addition to fundraising.
