On Wednesday Gov. Tim Walz issued a Stay at Home Order closing all non-essential business from 11:59pm on Friday, March 27th to 5:00pm on Friday, April 10th.

The Aliveness Project is considered an essential service and we will continue our commitment to the care and wellbeing of the HIV community during this crisis. Over the past two weeks, we have safely distributed 729 meals and over 400 bags of groceries to folks living with HIV. We fully expect these numbers to grow with restaurants closing and people laid off from work.  Additionally, Aliveness has seen an uptake in new membership applications. Whether you are newly diagnosed or a long-term survivor we are here for you during this crisis. *If you are a person living with HIV, or know someone living with HIV and would benefit from our services please call us at 612-822-7946*  

The safety and health of our members, volunteers, and staff continues to be our top priority as we navigate this every changing road. Please read the following changes to operational/service hours.

The Aliveness Project’s public spaces (lobby, community room, therapy rooms) will remain closed until further notice. All case managers will be working remotely and on-site appointments are prohibited during the Stay at Home Order. On-site rapid HIV testing is available on a case-by-case basis. *If you are high risk and need an HIV test please call us at 612-822-7946* Aliveness will continue to serve to-go meals and pre-packed food shelf bags during the days/hours below.

Providing critical services to our members while limiting their movement and keeping people at home as much as possible is our goal.
