Housing Works’ national office in Washington, DC, oversees a multi-pronged effort to galvanize people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS from around the country.
Housing Works’ national staff members regularly lobby members of Congress on legislation affecting people with HIV/AIDS and play a visible and key role in the ongoing rollout of President Obama’s National HIV/AIDS Strategy. Additionally, in collaboration with the National AIDS Housing Coalition, Housing Works’ national advocacy team also advocates that housing is an essential tool in the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS.
Housing Works also serves as the advisor and fiscal agent for a national grassroots coalition of people living with HIV, the Campaign to End AIDS, which has chapters in 25 states.
Lastly, we serve as the fiscal agent for CAIM (Proyecto Casa de Ayuda Intermedia al Menesteroso), a community-based organization in Fajardo, Puerto Rico.
