Eyewitness News took a look inside a Housing Works Health Center in Brooklyn.
For many New Yorkers, Housing Works is simply a place to get good second hand stuff or make a charitable donation of their own stuff.
But for some 20 years, it's actually been a life line for people affected by or infected with HIV and AIDS.
The money raised in the 10 Housing Works stores across the city helps fund a long list of services including case management, job training and health care.
The Housing Works in Brooklyn is a little different because it focuses on women, which represents the changing face of HIV/AIDS.
"We're seeing a lot more women, specifically women of color, that are afflicted by HIV/AIDS in New York City," said Dr. Maria Ghbur.
