PHMC has welcomed Calcutta House to its affiliate family. Founded in 1987, Calcutta House focuses on providing housing for people living with HIV/AIDS because a stable place to live is the foundation for the most effective and compassionate treatment, management and prevention of the disease.

Calcutta House is the only program of its kind in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania that offers housing, nursing services, rehabilitative, psycho-social services and life skills and development training to homeless individuals living with HIV/AIDS.

With two facilities in North Philadelphia, Calcutta House has served more than 600 individuals who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Calcutta House's round-the-clock nursing and home health aide services assist residents with daily living activities, consultations with medical providers, obtaining and administering prescribed medications and more. The organization's social services staff includes full-time social workers, life-skills counselors, addiction/recovery support staff and a consulting psychiatrist.
