Michaelle House Fundraiser
20% of your order at Ruby’s at the Oceanside pier will be donated towards Fraternity House Inc. Pick up a flyer at the Info Booths (I HAVE A FLYER, SO IF YOU WOULD LIKE ONE, LET ME KNOW AND I CAN MAKE YOU A COPY OR YOU COULD MEET US THERE AND JOIN US FOR DINNER), present it anytime on Fri., Sept. 19. Your support will help those at Michaelle House living with HIV/AIDS.

Fraternity House began operating as a home for homeless youth in 1986. When the AIDS epidemic surfaced, the focus of our organization changed, and on May 31, 1988, Fraternity House was incorporated and became a nonprofit dedicated to providing housing, meals and care to men and women disabled by AIDS.

In 1996, we became one of the first RCF-CI’s in the State, enabling us to admit non-ambulatory and bed-bound men and women with AIDS. In order to meet RCF-CI licensing requirements, we hired Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA’s) to provide 24-hour care for our residents. In 1997, we opened Michaelle House in response to the growing need for AIDS care in San Diego County. We doubled the number of men and women we can care for at Michaelle House in 1999, which raised our capacity to a total of 20 beds.

Fraternity House, Inc. has evolved from primarily hospice care to becoming the only licensed provider of the full range of AIDS care in San Diego County. We have two caring homes operating at full capacity, with long waiting lists: Michaelle House and Fraternity House. Our residents live in a home-like environment in which we provide them with housing, 24-hour comprehensive care, supportive and rehabilitation services. Click here to read more.
