What Does it Mean to be a Member?
Like pioneers of the HIV/AIDS community before us, we take a “for-us, by-us” approach to community care.
We are run by and exist for people living with HIV — there’s shared experience and a deep undercurrent of kinship in our community center.
We call folks who receive our HIV care services “members” because you have ownership here.
At the Aliveness Project, members not only get the care they need, but we also support one another.
How to Become a Member
Meet with our member services team for a tour of our building. We will connect you to the programs and services you need.
The best part of what we do is getting to see members living healthy, self-directed lives: physically, mentally, and emotionally. We cannot wait to support you on your journey.
What information will you need?
You’ll want two types of documentation on hand before you start your application:
- Proof that you are living with HIV: MyChart documentation, medical visit summary, a letter or note from your physician, etc.
- Proof of Minnesota residency: State ID or driver's license, utility bill with your current address, copy of your lease
This will help us move you forward as quickly as possible, so you can get to the good stuff as an official member. If you do not have these documents, please contact us — we’ll do our best to assist you.
A new HIV diagnosis is an adjustment and can bring up emotions that can be challenging to navigate.
As you process what this new normal means for you, know that we’re here if you need us — and will welcome you with open arms when you’re ready to become a member.
