Application Code: US13-Int
Job Function: Development / Fundraising / Grant-Writing

Housing Works, a nonprofit founded in 1990 to combat the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS in New York City, has served over 25,000 New Yorkers since its inception. Housing Works provides housing, care management, primary care, job training, preventative services, outreach, legal support, and various other supportive services to over 5,500 people every year. Its entrepreneurial enterprises like the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe, Thrift Shops, and The Works Catering all support Housing Works’ client services and our local, state, and national advocacy efforts.
With Governor Cuomo’s commitment to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic in New York State by 2020, we are already hard at work both internally and externally to make this goal a reality. Only by addressing the social drivers of HIV/AIDS like poverty, education, and homelessness can we end the AIDS epidemic in New York State by 2020, in the U.S. by 2025, and worldwide by 2030.
