Anishinaabe Endaad

Providing hope, growth and opportunity
for Native American men seeking recovery.

Anishinaabe Endaad is a culturally specific permanent supportive housing program that seeks to promote healing and long term life-changes in Native people by focusing on recovery, community, and culture.

Our housing is clean, comfortable, and calm — a supportive and homey atmosphere in which residents can build fulfilling and productive lives. Our properties are within minutes of jobs, educational opportunities, healthcare, substance abuse services, and therapy clinics.

The program aims to support a healthy, grounded lifestyle through connections with housemates going through similar experiences and guidance from staff.

Can Residents work and receive GRH funding?

Yes, individuals can receive housing support (GRH) to pay their rent and basic household supplies. People who have income will pay rent. The self pay portion is based on your source of income and how much you make.

Are there onsite staff?

Anishinaabe Endaad is independent living with minimal staff. Clients manage their own schedules, finances, and daily activities. Property management monitors the buildings and case managers support clients.

What's the application and approval process?

Submit an application online through our website. Applications will be reviewed to ensure individuals meet the basic eligibility criteria and we may request a phone interview. If approved, a move in date will be scheduled once your required documents are received.

How are house rules enforced?

Program rules were created with the input from clients when we opened in 2019. Rules are updated regularly with client input. Our policy and procedure manual is available to clients online and rules are enforced by property management.

Is food provided?

Residents purchase their own food and prepare their own meals. County or Tribal human services departments can assist with SNAP for those who qualify. There are also local feasts and food shelves in the area.

What is included in the rent?

The common areas are fully furnished. We provide a bed, mattress, bedding, pillow, and dresser. Utilities, home phone, home monitoring, and internet are included. Household supplies such as paper towel, toilet paper, and cleaning supplies are included.

Do you accept people on medication assisted treatment (MAT)?

Yes, we encourage people at risk of opioid overdose to participate in medication assisted treatment. We accept all forms of MAT, including Suboxone, Methadone, and Vivitrol. Residents must securely store their medications in a lockbox.

Do all of your houses have the same rules?

No, we have two properties in Minneapolis and two on the White Earth reservation. Each location has its own set of rules based on the needs of the house.
