Volunteer opportunities


Volunteer opportunities are limited due to Alliance ‘s relatively small staff and ability to manage a meaningful experience that provides value to Alliance’s work and the volunteer.  Potential volunteer opportunities have included:

  • Spring or fall yard maintenance – raking, landscaping, weeding landscape, picking up trash.
  • Adopt a property and implement landscaping improvements.
  • Host a community dinner or BBQ for the tenants of our 27 unit rooming house.
  • Joining Alliance’s Board of Directors or one of its working commmittees.

If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please call or email Barbara Jeanetta at 612-879-7633 or  Our volunteer opportunities are also posted on the Hands on Twin Cities website:

Alliance is able to build and manage quality,housing for people with very low incomes or who need a 2nd chance. Through providing a financial gift of any size you will help:

  • Keep tenant rents 15-30% below market while still balancing the property management budget.

Alliance Housing is sometimes able to make use of donations of goods and services. Here are some of the items we can put to good use.

  • Gently used furniture – preferably not upholstered. Kitchen or dining room tables and chairs, dressers, beds, night stands and lamps are needed. We use these to furnish our tenant rooms.
  • Personal care and cleaning products. New tenants often need basic items such as toothpaste, soap, toilet paper, shampoo, laundry detergent, all-purpose cleaner etc.
  • Potted porch plants. We would use these to beautify our duplexes and other properties.
  • “Gently used” maintenance equipment or tools.

We are happy to discuss other donation items with you. Please call or email Barbara Jeanetta at 612-879-7633 or
