Help IFDA Support the 2021 Bailey House Mission


Founded in 1983, Bailey House was the first organization in the country to create innovative supportive housing and healthcare coordination models for people with HIV/AIDS experiencing homelessness. Today it offers nearly 700 units of housing to formerly homeless and low-income men, women, families, veterans, and LGBTQ youth affected by HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses, with an additional 250 units of congregate housing in development. In January of 2019, Bailey House officially merged with Housing Works, with the combined organization becoming one of New York’s largest housing, health, and human services providers. We believe that housing and healthcare are human rights and work towards a world without poverty, homelessness, hunger, HIV/AIDS, or other chronic illnesses.
