About Billy House: Founded in 1983 by a coalition of compassionate community leaders who responded to the AIDS crisis, Billy House was the first community organization in the country to address poverty, homelessness, food insecurity, mental health, substance abuse, and chronic disease to improve health outcomes for marginalized and low-income New Yorkers .
In January 2019, Bailey House merged with Housing Works, the country’s leading HIV/AIDS advocacy and service organization, creating a powerful new housing development corporation named Bailey House. The annual auction celebration continues to be the focus of fundraising activities that benefit Billy House’s housing programs. Bailey House maintains its corporate identity, board of directors, and independent operations. For more information on Bailey House, visit www.baileyhouse.org
