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.
Expanded housing needs addressed
DeLaCerda House Inc. has expanded with the shifting times to provide housing for people living with HIV/AIDS through two facilities. Robb's House and Steven's Place. The names of both facilities honor individuals from the community who have died of AIDS. In addition, in 2010 DeLaCerda House, Inc. opened Longview Place, a family residence.
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.
