2019 Annual Recap

In 2019, the Board of Hope House of St. Croix Valley released a bold and visionary three-year strategic plan to continue our mission to provide a non-judgmental home with compassionate care, respecting the dignity of people living with HIV.

As we enter 2020, we look back and recognize all of the wonderful things that have happened this past year. Be sure to read our year-end appeal recapping what we’ve accomplished in 2019:

AIDS Memorial Garden

In remembrance of those lost in our community

Hope House is humbled to announce the creation of an AIDS Memorial Garden. Through the generosity of an anonymous donor, the garden will be installed on the west edge of the property, close to the walking paths just off Cherry Street on the north hill in Stillwater.

Care Partner Positions

In its 25th year serving people living with HIV, Hope House is seeking outstanding individuals to start as Care Partners for various shifts throughout the week.

Started in 1991, Hope House is an Adult Foster Care Organization that provides services to persons living with HIV who otherwise could not live independently.

“My dad passed at Hope House, it was a wonderful place for him to be during his last years- Thank you for all you do!”


Hope House of St. Croix Valley was founded in 1991 by two St. Croix Valley residents, Teresa and Casey vanderBent. Their research on AIDS housing found that people living with AIDS were an almost invisible group receiving the least amount of services in Washington County and that Minnesotans with AIDS had few housing opportunities. In April 1991, a Board of Directors was formed, reflecting the organization’s strong community support. Hope House of St. Croix Valley was incorporated on May 7, 1991 and was granted tax-exempt status on September 30, 1991.
