Our History

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.

Last month, the coronavirus sicked all three residents of Hope House. Eight out of our nine caregivers couldn’t work because they had been infected or exposed to COVID-19. But thanks to the tireless efforts of our team and to a new state program, we were able to contain the virus and everyone is on the mend!
