Homelessness negatively impacts the educational achievement of our future workforce.
...after being accepted into Alternative Homes I was able to rebuild my life. Im now employed and live on my own. With out Alternative Homes I would probably still be living on the streets using drugs and alcohol...

Serving Those in Need
The mission of Alternative Homes is to provide a clean, safe and sober environment for clients and staff. The goal is to assist clients in furthering their education, securing employment along with independent living.

Pride and a sense of achievement is obtained once a guest is able to re-enter society as a contributing member. When a client successfully gains employment and independent living there is reason for celebration! 

A CONTINUING TRACK RECORD


In 2012 Alternative Homes acquired a similar housing agency, paving the way for a 53% growth of the company. Continuing growth and the expansion of services for the homeless is essential in the fight to end homelessness.
25% of men experiencing homelessness in Minneapolis and Hennepin County are military veterans.
