Bruce House brings hope, housing and support to individuals and families impacted by HIV in Ottawa and area.

Since opening its doors in 1988, through the generous support of local individuals and organizations, Bruce House has been delivering a ‘housing-first’ approach for people in our community living with, and impacted by, HIV.

We are committed to ensuring our clients have access to stable housing, supported independence, and opportunities for healthy living.
