CLIENT SUPPORT SERVICES

Casa Iris logoCasa Iris was founded in August 1994, because of the level of stigma, cultural barriers, and lack of knowledge that increase infection among the Latino/as population and, at the time, labeled HIV as a death sentence. Because of the challenges Iris Rivera, a Latina PLWA, endured as a result of the communities' perception of HIV,  she decide to do something that involved educating the Latino/as community, in the greater Boston area, who are infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. Now located at the MAC, Casa Iris offers culturally and linguistically appropriate peer support and referrals to HIV/AIDS infected and affected Latino(as) in the Greater Boston area.  Casa Iris provides a safe and confidential environment that respects the rights and opinions of everyone.

Casa Iris provides:

  • Support Groups for Individuals Living with HIV/AIDS
  • Referrals to Other Health and Social Services
  • Individual Peer Support
  • Skills Building for Consumers
  • Volunteer Opportunities
