Bailey Houses Gala and Auction was held at the Chelsea Piers on March 26 2015.
The event celebrated the heroism of individuals and organizations that assists the Bailey House’s mission of transforming the lives of people with or at risk of HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses through housing, health services and community.
Many came to give their support including the cast of B.O.R.N. To Style from the FYI network.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Cast members Brandon Hood and Devin Stokes. During the evening I also spoke to TV Personality Ted Allen and News Anchor Jane Pauley who have to come to Bailey House Auction and Gala for many years.
Bailey House’s mission is to help transform the lives of people with or at risk of HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses through housing, health services and community support.
They believe that housing and healthcare are human rights. The organization works towards a world without poverty, homelessness, hunger, HIV/AIDS or other chronic illnesses.

In 1983, a group of visionary and compassionate men and women organized the nation’s first response to homelessness among men living with AIDS.
Starting with just a few apartments in Chelsea and Greenwich Village, they created the AIDS Resource Center. Continuing to advocate on behalf of homeless, with the support of the Koch and Cuomo administrations they opened Bailey House, the nation’s first congregate residence for people living with HIV/AIDS. Its visible presence on the corner of Christopher Street and the West Side Highway in Greenwich Village marked a significant milestone—it was the first time that any agency publicly acknowledged and funded a program that addressed poverty and homelessness among people with AIDS. Stable, supportive housing became a demand of AIDS activists in New York City and around the nation.
In 1986, we opened Bailey-Holt House, the nation’s first congregate residence for people living with AIDS. It provided tangible proof that stable housing helps people living with AIDS survive. As treatments evolved and the perception of AIDS changed from a death sentence to a serious, but manageable chronic illness we continued to add new programs and innovate new models of housing.
