New Jersey Programs
In 2011, we began offering programs for young men and women in Plainfield and Irvington Schools, and early in 2012 launched our i-Matter Program full scale in Irvington. In the summer of 2012, we opened an office in Plainfield, NJ, from which we are presenting a number of Prevention Education and other programs.
Services we offer:
HIV Testing is offered free and confidentially Monday - Friday from 10 AM to 5 PM at our office at 630 East Front Street, Suite 100.
SIHLE Program(Sistering, Informing, Healing, Living and Empowering) is a peer-led intervention aimed at reducing HIV sexual risk behavior among African American/Latina teenage females, ages 14-18. It consists of four 3-hour sessions, delivered by two peer facilitators (ages 18-21) and one adult facilitator. SIHLE emphasizes ethnic and gender pride, and enhances awareness of HIV risk reduction strategies such as abstaining from sex, using condoms consistently, and having fewer sex partners.
Nia- Is a program for young Black/Latino menbetween ages 18-24. The program aims to reduce substance abuse and the transmission of HIV/AIDS among at-risk racial/ethnic minority young adults while also promoting positive communications among sexual partners to change social norms and perceptions of African American males regarding condom use.
Additionally, Iris House provides HIV 101 education to teens and adults in schools, at community centers and other locations.
We also have an active Condom Distribution Program in Plainfield. A list of sites where free condoms are available can be obtained by clicking here.
