Bailey-Boushay House 20th Anniversary

Logo: Bailey-Boushay House 20th Anniversary: 1992-2012

Celebrating 20 Years of Service in the Community

In 1992, AIDS was an epidemic and people with the disease lived one day at a time. In the past 20 years, HIV/AIDS has evolved from an epidemic to a chronic disease and Bailey-Boushay House has evolved too. Bailey-Boushay is now a place of hope and stability — a place for people who want to live.

We are so grateful to everyone who supported our mission. Thank you to those who helped us celebrate and honor those who have passed through our doors.
