DeLaCerda House's mission is to provide housing, advocacy services, and intensive case management for persons living with HIV/AIDS and other special needs.

DeLaCerda House Inc. is a non-profit (501 (c) 3) organization that was formed in 1995. The organization was founded to respond to the housing needs of people living with HIV and AIDS. As medical treatment has advanced, infected people are living longer.

DeLaCerda House Inc. partners with many community agencies in the care of our residents. Agencies, such as Virology Center, AIDS Project Quad Cities, Quad City Affirming Diversity, Community Health Care, VA Medical Centers, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Department of Human Services, Project NOW, Rock Island Township, Robert Young Mental Health Center and Housing Authorities, all participate in collaboration for services, care and assistance to our residents.

Interested in volunteering at an Executive level for a well established non-profit organization which makes an enormous contribution to your community? Your involvement is typically only one hour per month for Board of Directors and oversight functions. All professions provide a unique perspective to our board and allow the agency to move forward with your diverse contributions. Learn more by contacting Board President, Mr. David Cahoon.
