St. Nicks Alliance Supports Puerto Rico

Help support St. Nicks Alliance's campaign to raise funds towards Puerto Rico relief efforts. St. Nicks Alliance has partnered with the Boys and Girls Club of Puerto Rico to donate funds received by St. Nicks Alliance.

Our Beginnings

It all started in 1975 when parishioners of St. Nicholas Roman Catholic Church responded to help their neighbors after a fire destroyed a row of frame buildings on Powers Street. St. Nicks Alliance emerged at the forefront of a nationwide grassroots movement to preserve and improve neighborhoods. We haven't wavered from the heart of that mission since then.
