Casa 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.

Casa Iris provides a safe and confidential environment that respects the rights and opinions of everyone.
