Clare Housing Receives $10,000 from The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation — February 8, 2016
Funding will support Clare Housing’s vision to create an AIDS-free world built on a foundation of equitable access to housing and healthcare.
We’re pleased to announce that Clare Housing has been awarded a grant of $10,000 from The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF). The grant will be used to support Clare Housing’s mission to create a continuum of affordable supportive housing options that create healing communities and optimize the health of people living with HIV/AIDS here in Minnesota.
“The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation has long been a touchstone of dedicated leadership in the fight to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic,” says Chuck Peterson, Clare Housing Executive Director. “We are delighted to be recognized for our work by the ETAF, and will soon apply the $10,000 awarded to aid our residents, many who are living with HIV/AIDS on less than $10,000 a year.”
“The work that Clare Housing does to help people living with HIV/AIDS is impressive, and very much aligned with Elizabeth Taylor’s passionate commitment to the cause,” said Joel Goldman, Managing Director of The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. “ETAF is thrilled to present Clare Housing with these funds to help further our shared mission.”
