Bruce House was established in 1988 with the generous support of a number of local individuals who provided us with our first residence. Since then, Bruce House has grown to encompass much more. The agency now manages a seven-bed residence that provides 24-hour personal care, as well as support to 40 apartment units throughout the city for people living with HIV and AIDS. Our Apartment Program supports residents with personal support, counseling and referral to a number of other organizations and agencies throughout the region.
Bruce House works with the City of Ottawa, the Province of Ontario and the government of Canada, a network of community centers and agencies, local hospitals, such as the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, the Ottawa General Hospital, physicians, social service agencies and other local charitable agencies and organizations.
