Volunteer opportunities


Alliance Housing is a proud member of Hands on Twin Cities which helps match and coordinate individual and corporate volunteers to our work:  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.
  • Event assistance.
  • Organize a drive to collect and donate cleaning supplies, bed linens or personal hygiene supplies.
  • 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:



We welcome your contribution, of any size, in any of the following ways:

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:

  • Fund flexible and relational property management staff to help tenants live independently and remain stably housed.

2018 Annual Report

Our annual report allows us to acknowledge all of our generous donors and reflect on our accomplishments of the past year. This year we claim our role in “anchoring affordability” in Minneapolis neighborhoods.  Low wage workers and people on a fixed income are increasingly being priced out of the rental housing market.  Chaz, Tamika and others comment on the link between affordability and stability.

Alliance 2018 Annual Report

Save the date: Richard Rothstein & “The Color of Law”

Please hold Thursday, October 17th on your calendar. Alliance Housing, the Hennepin History Museum and Plymouth Congregational Church are hosting Richard Rothstein for an evening presentation. “The Color of Law” describes how racial discrimination is baked into many of our housing, employment and public benefit systems. Change to get to true equity will take structural dismantling as well as behavior changes.
