While the Supports staff has always served a vital role within our Momentum programming, based on the dire need within the community, Urban Alliance Support services now also include recovery efforts, access to clinical services, and resource navigation. This allows Outreach staff to connect our friends with appropriate Support staff and resources.
Recovery resources for our community aid individual and shared success.
Urban Alliance is designated as the only registered Narcotics Anonymous (NA) site in Kalamazoo’s Edison neighborhood. In addition to serving as a community resource, open processing groups are available free of charge and facilitated multiple days per week both by Urban Alliance staff and in partnership with additional trained staff from community partners.
Urban Alliance brings free clinical services to individuals who typically lack access.
We are pleased to partner with several licensed clinical practitioners to provide group and individual support to our community free of charge.
These critical services are rarely available in marginalized neighborhoods and are typically cost-prohibitive. Many within our urban communities are often wary of such services, so we work diligently to normalize these types of benefits and to ensure they are available to anyone that needs them.

A helping hand guides participants to appropriate resources.
Urban Alliance is grateful to have the trust of so many individuals in our community. We work to grow and honor that trust each day.
Our friends often come to us with needs that we are not equipped to address so we make it our business to know the groups that can. Many organizations do navigation, but the way Urban Alliance does navigation sets us apart.
We walk through the necessary processes together. We cannot and will not do the hard work for our friends, but we will not ask them to do the work alone.
