Case Management

The team of case managers at Indigenous Peoples Task Force are continuing to work remotely and address issues around medical access, non-medical benefits, and housing, particularly for people with HIV and syringe users. We are still taking on new cases. How can we help you?

COVID-19 Community Engagement

We are partnering with the Minnesota Department of Health to eliminate stigma, reduce fear, and enhance health equity as Minnesota works to eliminate the surge in COVID infections and related deaths. Read more and sign up for updates on where you can get a COVID-19 test.
