For more than two decades, Iris House has addressed chronic health conditions, including HIV, Hepatitis C and substance abuse issues with case management, supportive programs, prevention education and testing services.

Iris House saves lives through comprehensive support, prevention and education services for women, families, and under served populations affected by HIV/AIDS and other health disparities in a safe, family-centered environment by passionate, professional and culturally competent staff.

Iris House was named for early HIV Activist Iris De La Cruz, whose passion for our cause was instrumental in establishing our programs.

To fulfill our mission, Iris House offers practical, family-centered services that promote prevention and education while addressing the day-to-day realities of living with HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, Diabetes, Obesity, Hypertension, Depression and other health disparities plaguing our communities.

All of our programs are developed to achieve the following goals:

  • To promote and support independent functioning for our clients, to improve quality of life, and to maintain optimum health status for clients and their families;
  • To educate policy makers, elected officials, and human health service providers about the issues and concerns affecting our clients and their families; and
  • To advocate for changes in policy and programs that are more responsive to the needs of women and their families.
