The Aliveness Project is the only community drop-in center for individuals living with HIV/AIDS in Minnesota.
We moved to our new home at 3808 Nicollet Avene in Minneapolis on November 11!
All donations to our Capital Campaign will pay for our new building and will be matched by a generous grant from the Ray Edwards Memorial Trust up to $100,000!
Our mission is to encourage self-empowerment and provide direct services to people living with HIV/AIDS. During 2012, one out of four Minnesotans living with HIV/AIDS--over 1,700 individuals--used our services, including:
• Hot Meal Program, serving more than 34,000 hot meals in our dining room each year;
• Food Shelf, providing food to an average of 215 households each month and giving out 51 tons of food last year;
• Integrative Therapy Program, facilitating an average of 300 monthly appointments for acupuncture, chiropractic care, massage, and other therapeutic treatment at our location;
• Case Management Program, assisting 125 individuals with client advocacy and referral services last year;
• Health and Wellness Programs, offering seminars on a variety of topics such as choosing a medical provider, managing HIV drug treatment and other topics related to living with HIV/AIDS;
• Holiday Basket Program, spreading holiday spirit through 692 baskets with gifts and food for over 1,400 adults and 400 children in 2012.
