Our Mandate:

The Iris Kirby House Foundation is a non-profit, charitable organization which is governed by a voluntary Board of Directors.

We strive to facilitate the healing and self-empowerment process of women and their children who have experienced abuse. This is accomplished by providing support and advocacy services and by focusing on healing in the areas of emotional, mental, and physical growth within a safe, secure and supportive environment.


The IKH Foundation has a mandate to support the work of Iris Kirby House. They fulfill this role by providing financial support for programs such as the empowerment series, youth program, various programs and projects, the second stage housing program, and the Up and Out project.
