Help Us Nourish Our Community During Tough Times

Who We Are
Clare Housing is a Minneapolis-based non-profit agency that provides affordable housing with services to 300 neighbors living with HIV/ AIDS. Those who live with us have often experienced systemic and individual harm and discrimination, so we commit to ensuring that living at Clare Housing feels healing, empowering, dignifying, and connective. This goal is not achievable without the partnership of neighbors and friends from the broader community (such as you!).

The Opportunity
Life happens; we all know this. Sometimes daily necessities, such as personal hygiene items, cleaning supplies, and food are hard to come by; that’s why we like to keep some basic items on-hand for days and moments when our community needs a little boost.

We like to stock nutritious, satisfying, and non-perishable food and household items on an ongoing basis. Some examples include:

  • Peanut butter
  • Canned soups and stews (chili, hearty soups, etc.)
  • Laundry detergent
  • Kitchen and bathroom cleaners
  • Rice
  • Microwaveable instant oatmeal
  • Pancake mix
  • Special diet foods - gluten-free, low-sugar, low-sodium
  • Vinegar and baking soda
  • Sponges

For a current list of basic needs supplies, please check out our registry with Target, which you can shop from directly! The link is

About Clare Housing


929 Central Avenue NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413, US

Mission Statement

Clare Housing provides a continuum of affordable and supportive housing options that create healing communities and optimize the health of people living with HIV/AIDS. We envision an AIDS-free world built on a foundation of equitable access to housing and health care.


Founded in 1987, Clare Housing has created an enduring legacy of providing affordable, supportive housing and compassionate care for people living with and affected by HIV and AIDS. Our person-focused programs are designed to bring together strategies of harm reduction, treatment and care to enhance quality of life and reduce new infections in our community.

Over the last several decades Clare Housing has grown from one residence serving four people to developing, owning, and managing seven residential programs accommodating more than 150 people. Responding to the rapidly changing complexity of the disease, we advance programs and new solutions that address the full-continuum of HIV-related housing needs in our community, with the goal of ending homelessness among individuals living with HIV.
