About Housing

The Rainbow Health Housing Program assists people living with HIV who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in obtaining and maintaining stable housing. Our housing program offers support in locating housing, providing tenant-related education, advocating on behalf of program participants, and providing short–term rental assistance.

Rainbow Health’s Housing Program can serve people living with HIV across Minnesota and also Pierce and St. Croix counties in Wisconsin.

Please contact AIDSLine for more information.

Housing Advocacy

The Housing Advocacy program works to increase affordable housing for people living with HIV and to fight HIV discrimination and stigma in housing. The Housing Systems Advocate assists HIV case managers and service providers throughout Minnesota with housing education and resources, participates in community planning and advocacy groups, and provides outreach to housing providers and organizations.

If you are a care provider looking for additional information about Rainbow Health’s housing advocacy work, you can sign up for our Housing Info Newsletter.
