  • Fund part-time staff positions to assist tenants in living independently and remain stably housed.

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.
  • Gift certificates, picture frames, and other new household items. We would use these as prizes for family celebrations in our Northside Supportive Housing for Families program.
  • “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

Please join us!

Thanks to those of you who joined us for the 2017 Alliance Housing’s Annual Fundraising Breakfast on Sept. 28th.  Our guests, sponsors and donors helped us raise nearly $80,000 to support our work.  Pat, 2011 Pillsbury resident, shared how Alliance helped him when he was homeless and again after his stroke.  Until his stroke, Pat worked hard at D’Amico catering and helped refer other tenants to jobs.  Gloria, former tenant and Northside Supportive Housing for Families participant, shared her successes with Sue Roedl’s suport – a GED, increasing wages, better credit, training and now homeownership.  Gloria accomplished this as a single Mom of 5 kids.  Amazing!



Raise the Roof; a music fest to benefit Alliance Housing

And a fun time was had by all on June 10th at Tuttles in Hopkins. Alliance netted $3500 and 100+ of our friends enjoyed the music, food, wine/beer pull, silent auction and raffle. Stay tuned for the 2nd annual in Spring 2018.
