WELCOME TO URBAN ALLIANCE!
Thanks for visiting us online! Our mission is to foster and promote community development programs within urban communities. In addition, we are a conduit for agencies, churches and corporations to contribute to the betterment of their community.
Urban Alliance was formed out of a need to see urban communities transformed and a desire to create a vehicle for that to happen. Although the work of some of our subsidiaries was conceived as early as 1999, Urban Alliance, Inc. received its tax exempt status in 2006. Along with creating, fostering and promoting community development programs within urban communities, Urban Alliance serves as a conduit for providing multiple services to marginalized residents.
Urban Alliance comprises the following four divisions: Momentum Neighborhood Employment Solutions, Vanguard Street Ministry, His Kingdom Housing and our Urban Ministry Incubator. We are also the parent organization for Jesus Loves Kalamazoo.
Since its inception, Urban Alliance through its four divisions has fostered many positive programs, beginning in the Kalamazoo County through various partnerships. The goal of Urban Alliance, Inc. is not to duplicate services but rather to work with people and organizations that have creative ideas on how to fill service gaps within their community. Our target group is marginalized people. Our experience over the past 14 years has been that evangelism alongside social services provides a powerful offense against hopelessness, poverty, addiction and crime.
