Housing Works stands for justice, equality, and advocacy.
Together, we can eradicate homelessness and inequality in healthcare provision. Through advocacy and justice, we can revamp the quality of life for the most vulnerable New Yorkers! Become a part of Housing Works to join our efforts in tackling the dual crises of homelessness and the spread of HIV/AIDS in our local communities.
What we do
Housing Works provides professional, compassionate, life-saving services to the most vulnerable New Yorkers. We advocate at the city, state, and national levels to pass laws to make our clients safer and healthier, and we run consumer-facing businesses to help support our mission.
What makes us different
For 30 years, Housing Works has addressed the needs of over 30,000 individuals that other organizations deem "too challenging" to serve. Our team members are smart, fast, mission-driven decision-makers who are empowered to make a significant impact on our clients' health and wellbeing.
Housing Works is the most meaningful job I've ever had. Everyday I am inspired by my co-workers' passion and driven by a personal mission to help those who need it the most.
Andrew Greene, Chief Operating Officer
Housing Works pioneered the concept of social enterprise businesses. Today, we operate several cornerstone businesses of the NYC landscape, including the acclaimed Housing Works Thrift Shops and Housing Works Bookstore Café. Our team members are nimble, entrepreneurial individuals who thrive on collaboration, solving challenging problems, and might just launch a business of their own someday.
