Founded in 1988, Bryan's House is the first nonprofit organization in the country to provide 24/7 comprehensive medical and social services in a home-like setting for children living with HIV/AIDS at the peak of the epidemic. Today, we have evolved to provide medically managed child development programs, early childhood education for children with special needs, and personalized case management for their families. In 2021-2022, most families we served were economically-disadvantaged, had two or more children (at least one with special needs), and earned just over $24,000 per year.
Bryan's House serves children with a wide variety of special needs, including those diagnosed with cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorder, heart conditions, spina bifida, physical disabilities, development delays, rare diagnoses, etc.
We focus on two-generational programming for the children and their parents/caregivers. Services include family case management and support, early intervention services, early childhood education, onsite speech, physical and occupational therapies, and emergency financial assistance to ensure families remain in their homes. As a result, the children we serve can reach their full potential, and families can become self-sufficient and rise out of poverty.
