Brief 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.

[…] “The new Mission and Vision Statements of Hope House reflect the strong leadership the organization currently enjoys and highlight two guiding principles: the continuation of our founding mission to provide a home for people living with HIV/AIDS, an effort that has brought decades of hope, compassion, and acceptance to over 80 residents and their families, and the launching of new programming that will vastly expand our reach by helping more people with a wider variety of needs…effectively delivering that same hope, compassion, and acceptance out to people who wish to remain in the home of their choice,” states Casey vanderBent, 2021-22 Board Chair.
