Align Minneapolis (formerly Downtown Congregations to End Homelessness, DCEH)

Align Minneapolis is an interfaith collaboration of 17 downtown Minneapolis churches, synagogues and mosques working together to end homelessness and poverty. Align Minneapolis focuses on shifting from an immediate needs approach to long term solutions through a combination of education, advocacy and action. Through learning and volunteer opportunities for congregants, community partnerships, and development of effective strategies and programs, Align Minneapolis is committed to impacting the community around us to end homelessness.


There will always be people who are homeless. But, we can change the system so fewer people fall into homelessness and more people move out of homelessness quickly.

  • Prevention costs less and is more humane than allowing people to become homeless and then addressing shelter needs.
  • People need safe, affordable housing before services can effectively address life issues.
  • Contact Janice for more information on any of our programs or to get involved.
