Home hope and community-for over 32 years.

In 1983, a group of visionary and compassionate men and women organized the nation’s first response to homelessness among men living with AIDS. Starting with a few apartments in Chelsea and Greenwich Village, they created the AIDS Resource Center. Continuing to advocate on behalf of homeless, they opened Bailey House, the nation’s first residence for people living with HIV/AIDS. Its visible presence in Greenwich Village marked the first time that any agency publicly acknowledged and funded a program that addressed poverty and homelessness among people with AIDS.

In 1986, Bailey-Holt House opened, the nation’s first residence for people living with AIDS. As treatments evolved and the prognosis of AIDS patients improved, we continued to add new programs and innovate new models of housing.

In 1995, we officially changed our name to Bailey House in honor one of our founders, Reverend Mead Miner Bailey, by then thousands of people were infected, many grappling with poverty and homelessness. Our programs expanded into East Harlem, Bedford Stuyvesant, Flatbush, Clinton, Harlem, the Lower East Side, the South Bronx, Astoria, Jamaica and other neighborhoods with the highest incidence of HIV-infection and poverty. Bailey House offers bilingual, drop-in services to people living with HIV/AIDS throughout New York City. We added job training, a food pantry, housing placement and substance abuse services.

Schafer Hall, a 91-unit supportive housing residence in East Harlem, houses 30 families headed by HIV-positive parents and 30 single HIV-positive adults. The Bailey House staff provides them with hope and the services they needed to stabilize and maintain their housing and health.

Today Bailey House serves more than 1800 people living with HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses throughout New York City. We provide housing and services that help clients address homelessness, poverty, hunger, substance use, mental illness and other critical issues that make survival hard, if not impossible.
