Please excuse the appearance of our website. We are currently undergoing a redesign.

The New York City AIDS Housing Network (NYCAHN) is an award winning* membership organization comprised and led by low-income people living with HIV/AIDS working in a unique coalition with nonprofit housing providers and AIDS service organizations.

Given that housing is a human right, it is our mission to empower low-income people living with HIV/AIDS to organize our community, including the non-profits that serve us, to advocate for more housing, better housing and sound public policies for all people living with HIV/AIDS.

In the belief that real social change will not come about unless those who are most disenfranchised and the most directly impacted by public policies are the ones that take action, we engage in community organizing, direct action organizing, advocacy, popular education and participatory research.  We seek to address the ROOT CAUSES OF THE ISSUES THAT AFFECT THE LIVES OF OUR MEMBERS, so we make the connection between human rights, civil & political rights and we see the link between housing & homelessness, criminal justice, welfare, immigration, AIDS & healthcare.

Given that we actively seek to build the power of the our community, we encourage you to get involved. For more information, contact us or click here for information about BECOMING A MEMBER.

We are committed to participatory democracy guided by the following principles which all of our members strive to embrace:

  • creating a world that respects the human rights of all people.
  • respect, dignity and equality for everyone, regardless of HIV status, substance use or criminal justice history, immigration status, ability, age, culture, gender, or sexual orientation.
  • strengthening the power of our community.
  • building a just society where there is equal economic, social, and political opportunity for all.
  • working collectively and in coalition with all who share our principles in a non-judgmental manner.
  • celebrating the power of our diversity and our community.
  • supporting NYCAHN endorsed actions in every way, including committing to attending at least 2 visibility actions per year.
