Description of Agency
Calcutta House exists to provide housing and highly supportive services for people living with AIDS in Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley region. This mission is based on the premise that housing is the foundation for the most effective and compassionate treatment, management, and prevention of the disease. Customized support services, responsive to the individual, are delivered with the conviction that self-empowerment will advance attainable goals enabling a resident to realize his/her full potential while adhering to treatment and care plans.
Calcutta House serves people living with AIDS who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless in need of rehabilitative and supportive care regardless of age, color, creed, physical or mental disability, ethnicity, familial status, gender identity and expression, national origin, race, religion, pregnancy, sex or sexual orientation. The organization recognizes a special responsibility to respond to the poorest and most vulnerable of the community. Calcutta House has served over 400 individuals since its inception and currently serves, at any given time, 31 residents.
