The Central Minnesota Task Force on Battered Women, doing business as Anna Marie's Alliance, is a private non-profit corporation dedicated to providing safe shelter, support, and referral services for battered women and their children. The Alliance also works with the community on systems change and violence prevention.

Anna Marie's has sheltered over 14,300 battered women and their children since 1979—more than 8,220 of these were children.

We hold the dream of non-violence for women & children

until they can hold it for themselves.

You are the dream catcher

Thank you to everyone who donates to Anna Marie's Alliance.  Thank you for holding the dreams of non-violence for the women and children of Anna Marie's Alliance.  

The Lakota Sioux believe dreams and nightmares float in the air but a dream catcher snatches the nightmares and only lets the good dreams through.  

Good dreams are new to many of the women and children who stay at Anna Marie's Shelter. Their good dreams have been taken from them.  YOU restore those good dreams with your donations of money and items.

This holiday season when you hold your own sweet dreams close to your heart, please remember the women and children of Anna Marie's Alliance.  Your donation will keep them safe.

You can donate on this web site or send your donation to Anna Marie's Alliance, POBox 367, St. Cloud, MN 56302. Thank you.

From the staff of Anna Marie's Alliance, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season filled with peace and joy.

Thank you, River City Dental

Anna Marie's Alliance is pleased to announce a new partnership with Dr. Aaron Imdieke of River City Dental in St. Cloud. When a woman or child residing at the shelter experiences tooth pain the doctor is in! Thank you, Dr. Imdieke, for providing a valuable service to the women and children of Anna Marie's Shelter.

Turkey Cards

Anna Marie's Alliance can use your turkey card! If you have a card that you cannot use, please drop it off or mail it to us! We will use it to provide a lovely turkey dinner to our residents.

Thank you!

Donate for the Holidays!

When a family leaves their home because of domestic abuse they  generally face economic hardship for the first several years. With your help we can make a difference this holiday season. We invite you and your family, organization or business to adopt a family or single woman from  Anna Marie’s Alliance.

You may choose the size family you wish to adopt:

Woman (single, no children)
Small family - 1-3 persons
Medium Family - 4-5 persons
Large family - 6+ persons

The coordinator will mail or fax information on the family’s needs including gender, age, sizes, etc. to assist you with your purchases. They will also have listed items they would like fwith a value not to exceed $85 per person. We will also have a Wish List with items needed to fill family needs for the women and children that come into the shelter right before Christmas and do not get adopted. That way we have extra gifts available that we can put together for these families or single women.

If you would like to be put on a waiting list for when a certain size family does come in please let Elaine know and she will take your info and contact you when your size family arrives. We strive to have everyone adopted so they have a wonderful Christmas at the shelter.

If you would like to join in the joy of gift-giving by adopting a family or single woman or purchasing gifts off the Wish List, please call the program coordinator, Elaine at 320.253.6900 as soon as possible.

11/23/15  To be Adopted:  1 Single Woman & 1 Woman with 1 Child.  

However more families will enter the shelter before the holidays.

Or, if you prefer to buy single items and bring them to the shelter for families, here are our wish lists:
