Since our founding in 1990, Housing Works has engaged in an array of advocacy strategies to further our mission of ending the twin crises of AIDS and homelessness: traditional government lobbying; regular legislative visits in Albany by HIV-positive clients; civil disobedience and street protests; and impact litigation. This inside-plus-outside pressure on elected officials has made Housing Works a force to be reckoned with on the local, state, national and international levels. Housing Works maintains advocacy offices in New York City, Albany, Washington, D.C., and Port-au-Prince, Haiti. We also maintain close partnerships with the Haitian AIDS organizations Fondation Esther Boucicault Stanislas and Plateforme Haitienne des Association PVVIH and the Puerto Rican harm reduction group CAIM.
