In 1987, a Zen monk named Issan Dorsey opened the Hartford Street Zen Center to care for a student dying of AIDS, establishing the beginnings of Maitri. Ten years later, Maitri moved into a 15-bed facility with a home-like setting designed to accommodate the special needs of people living with HIV/AIDS who required hospice care. Today, Maitri is a non-sectarian facility that continues to provide 24-hour care to very low income men and women with advanced AIDS needing hospice or short-term medical stabilization. Maitri has served more than 1,000 residents since opening its doors in 1987, most of whom experienced Maitri as their final home.
