Housing Works – Bookstore Cafe

This time I would to tell you about the Bookstore Cafe of Housing Works because it’s a cool, generous, kindly and very smart concept.IMG_1220 First I will introduce the Housing Works association which actually is a healing community of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Their mission is to end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS through relentless advocacy, the provision of lifesaving services, and entrepreneurial businesses that sustain their efforts. So they collect money through different way, thanks to donations but also opening small “businesses” like stores with all profits going to the association.

The Housing Works Bookstore Cafe is obviously a place where you can buy and rent books, but also buy music (CD, vinyle…), coffee and even something to eat. Work as if you are in a library, meet friends or just relax. Several times per you also can enjoy a special event.  Their one-of-a-kind space is available for rental and all of their merchandise is donated. They are staffed almost entirely by volunteers and 100% of their profits go to Housing Works.
