Since opening its doors in 1988 Bruce House has been delivering a ‘housing-first’ approach for people in our community living with, and impacted by, HIV/AIDS. 

We are committed to ensuring our clients have access to stable housing, supported independence, and opportunities for healthy living.  This is achieved by providing appropriate and affordable apartments; by providing practical supports such as food, clothing, and assistance with medical appointments/travel, and other needs; and by providing psycho-social supports via programs such as monthly Client Socials, a Community Kitchen program, arts and crafts activities, and providing clients with Volunteer Buddies to decrease social isolation. 

Many of our clients face additional challenges in addition to HIV, often with little or no support network.  Bruce House fills the role of “friends and family” in assisting clients through episodic disabilities, illness, and other events which could otherwise jeopardise health or stable housing.
