Iris House, named for Iris de la Cruz, who died of AIDS in 1991 after
working as an advocate for women with the disease, opened 15 years
ago as one of the first women-centered AIDS groups in the nation.
Financed by foundations and individuals, the organization distributes
100,000 condoms a month on neighborhood streets and provides
counseling and cooking classes to people with H.I.V. and AIDS.
