About Bailey House: Founded in 1983 by a coalition of compassionate community leaders responding to the AIDS crisis, Bailey House was the first community-based organization in the country to address poverty, homelessness, food insecurity, mental health, substance use, and chronic illness to improve health outcomes for marginalized, low-income New Yorkers.
In January 2019, Bailey House merged with Housing Works, the nation’s leading HIV/AIDS advocacy and service organization, creating a powerful new housing development enterprise under the Bailey House name. The annual Gala & Auction remains a centerpiece of fundraising activities benefitting Bailey House housing programs. Bailey House maintains its own corporate identity, Board of Directors, and independent operations.For more information about Bailey House, visit www.baileyhouse.org
