About Us


Alliance’s work makes it possible for individuals and families to create homes for themselves, regardless of income and background by developing and managing housing that is:
• inclusive,
• affordable,
• relational, and
• flexible.


Alliance Housing was born out of the vision of St. Stephens’ emergency shelter staff and residents who wanted to create tangible, long term housing solutions for homeless families and individuals. The organization was incorporated in 1991 and took advantage of vacant and available properties at low cost in South Minneapolis. Alliance continues to honor its history by developing housing solutions for homeless, poor and other individuals left out of market opportunities.
