Mission

Mission Statement: No one should have to suffer or die alone. Maitri provides compassionate residential care to men and women living with late-stage AIDS in need of hospice or 24-hour care, and cultivates the deepest respect and love for life among its residents and caregivers.

Founded in 1987 by Zen Buddhist monk Issan Dorsey, Maitri is a state-licensed, 15-bed facility serving low-income and medically underserved individuals with late-stage, debilitating AIDS. In this serene, healing space, dedicated staff and volunteers offer comprehensive nursing care and psychosocial and spiritual resources to residents, and extend respite and support to their loved ones as well.

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

At Maitri, we strive to provide the type of care that each of us would like to receive at the end of our lives – care that is dignified, non-judgmental, unconditional. We hold dear the principle that each resident has the right to determine the degree of choice and awareness with which to experience life and death.

The six components of Maitri's model residential care program for people living with AIDS are:
Nursing & attendant care
Comfortable accommodations
Food & nutrition
Social work case management
Resident activities
Volunteer programs

Fourteen of our 15 beds are reserved for HUD-defined low-income people and represent 90% of San Francisco's non-institutional hospice beds.
Since opening in 1987, Maitri has been the final home for more than 1200 people who lived with AIDS.
We maintain a waiting list of between 10 to 14 people at any given time.
Maitri is a recognized leader in residential care for people living with AIDS. We serve as a model program. In the past few years, we have hosted health officials from India, The Netherlands, Denmark, The Republic of Togo, Japan, and Namibia where similar type facilities are in the planning stages.
Less than 20% of Maitri's annual operating budget is ear-marked for administrative and fundraising expenses, meaning your gift goes directly toward providing care.

On track for accomplishing goals.
