My mother, Virginia Arrigoni, had a vision of how to help people succeed in sobriety. If only people had a stable home, additional support and more time, how could that impact the community? Her efforts to pioneer this solution began in 1973 when I was just a kid. She declared to me: “Billy, we’re opening a halfway house!”
Now, almost 50 years later, Supportive Living Solutions (SLS) supports thousands of clients each year in our various divisions – all focused on helping them succeed.
SLS exists to improve the quality of life in our community. We provide housing and services to individuals that have been historically marginalized. Through our service, we strive to inspire hope, personal growth, and the determination to lead a victorious life.
Widening Our Impact
Nearly 20 years ago, we launched strategic giving initiatives inspired by a simple goal: we wanted to make a further impact on the communities we serve. I’ve always had a heart for inner-city youth in low income communities. I knew that if we could help kids and their families, it could change the trajectory of their lives. Our desire for bigger impact sparked some lasting relationships with local charities.
These charities address housing, safe harbor, addiction recovery, job training, and education in the Twin Cities and beyond.
The Dwelling Place – The Dwelling Place provides healing and hope to victims of domestic abuse through supportive services and a safe, transitional place to call home.
Hope Academy – Hope Academy is a private, classical academy founded as an opportunity-equalizer for urban youth.
Cookie Cart – Cookie Cart fosters bright futures for teens by providing first job experiences and leadership training in youth-centered urban bakeries.
Union Gospel Mission – Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities serves people who are struggling with homelessness, poverty, and addiction in our community. They desire for their neighbors to know there is life beyond the streets.
World Encounter – St. Paul based World Encounter creates sustainable economic growth globally by providing capital, coaching, and community to women. They envision a world in which empowered women elevate communities and eliminate poverty!
