Thank You Donors – Your Compassion Drives Our Mission

This year Bailey-Boushay House (BBH) will celebrate 30 wonderful years of serving community members in need of compassion, dignity and medical care.

When we opened our doors in 1992, most of the country and the world were fearful of HIV/AIDS. But with the support of determined community members, BBH welcomed patients with open arms and a set of values that have endured.

“We fought hard to make Bailey-Boushay House a reality because we knew how desperately the services were needed. I’m also really proud of the role we played in educating the community about HIV/AIDS and shifting the conversation towards acceptance and inclusion,” says Executive Director Brian Knowles.  

Today, Bailey-Boushay House has 200 dedicated staff and a community of volunteers and donors that have sustained the mission to provide exceptional care to people with HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening conditions such as ALS, in order to enhance their health, well-being and functional independence.

Last year, 845 community members gave an impressive $2.25 million. This generosity allows BBH to continue to provide medical care, offer counseling and housing support for outpatient clients, cook thousands of meals for residents and day clients and crucial housing and transportation services.

“The statement that individuals, corporate donors and foundations make when they give to Bailey-Boushay is that they are with us. Each person and organization believe residents’ and clients' lives and well-being is worthy,” Brian says. “Looking ahead to the next 30 years, there’s a runway for us to care for many more people.”
