About Us

Make Love, NOT Drug War

All proceeds from Housing Works Cannabis Co support Housing Works, a NYC nonprofit dedicated to relentless advocacy, lifesaving services, and justice for all.

Housing Works was founded in 1990 by a group of activists who demanded safe and stable housing for people with AIDS. Today we meet our mission by providing housing, healthcare, and vocational training to thousands of New Yorkers annually. Our direct action and advocacy uplift communities that have suffered under the war on drugs.

Housing Works Cannabis Co is honored to feature products from LGBTQ+, BIPOC, and women-led brands, as these communities have been disproportionately affected by drug criminalization. 

Your purchase helps us continue to spread the love throughout NYC. Thank you.

What is Harm reDuction?

“Huh? Why is a drug treatment provider selling weed?!” As part of our person-centered approach to healthcare, Housing Works offers innovative substance use supports grounded in Harm Reduction. This non-judgmental, non-coercive, trauma-informed philosophy meets people where they’re at, including those left behind by social programs and medical institutions.

We believe people can and will make positive decisions about their health when given options that meet their circumstances. We respect the rights of people who use drugs and believe that everyone deserves healthcare. We value autonomy, responsibility, community, and compassion.
