It was announced today that Phoebe Trepp will take on the position of Executive Director for Clare Housing, the largest licensed provider of supportive affordable housing for people living with HIV in Minnesota.

For the past decade, Phoebe has led nonprofit organizations that work to ensure neighbors who are marginalized have supportive and affordable housing. Her career is dedicated to creating programs and growing agency impact. Most recently, Phoebe served as Executive Director of Willis Dady Homeless Services in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. During her tenure, Willis Dady grew five-fold, expanding programs, services, staff, and funding. She successfully launched and completed a $3 million capital campaign, the first in the agency’s history, to double the agency’s capacity and staff. Phoebe also recently earned her Master of Public Health in Community and Behavioral Health.

“We’re excited to join our client, Clare Housing, in welcoming Phoebe back to the Twin Cities community, where she will continue her work leading affordable and supportive housing programs as Clare’s new Executive Director,” said Beau Bye, Vice President at CohenTaylor. “With her commitment to serving marginalized communities and track record of success expanding funding, services, and programs for those she serves, we’re excited to see Clare Housing continue to grow and flourish under Phoebe’s leadership.”

Clare Housing’s mission is to provide a continuum of affordable and supportive housing options that create healing communities and optimize the health of people living with HIV/AIDS. It began housing individuals diagnosed with AIDS in 1987, opening its first Community Care Home for those needing compassionate end-of-life care. Since then, Clare Housing has been on the frontlines of providing quality supportive services and permanent affordable housing solutions for people living with and impacted by HIV/AIDS. Clare Housing is the only organization in Minnesota dedicated to advancing new programs and solutions to address the full-continuum of HIV-related housing needs.
