Alley’s House  incentive program allows teen moms to earn needed items for their children and themselves. After each goal or success they earn “Alley’s House dollars” that can be used to purchase items from the boutique. Items may be dropped off at Alley’s House office, Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm. Please ensure that items are fully assembled and clean before dropping off your donation. Due to the size of our boutique, we are limited in the items that we can accept. We encourage you to check back for updates to our in-kind donation needs.
