The perfect setting for your retirement . . .
Welcome Home!

Just minutes from historic downtown DeLand, Florida and a stone’s throw from Stetson University, Alliance Community is the ideal retirement location.

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of living in or visiting central Florida, then perhaps you’re acquainted with our lovely city of DeLand. Home of Stetson University, Florida’s oldest private university, DeLand is shaded by an abundant canopy of glorious oak trees and is lush with Floridian vegetation. While it possesses the cultural and convenient benefits of a larger city, DeLand is known for its historic character and small-town charm.

DeLand is located in the heart of central Florida only minutes away from great fishing and golfing , and just a short distance from some of our most popular tourist attractions and beaches.
