Orsinger Matching Grant
OMG! The Genevieve and Ward Orsinger Foundation has challenged Alpha Home with a $25,000 Matching Grant! Between now and June 18, the Orsinger Matching Grant (OMG!) will match, dollar for dollar, any new gift to Alpha Home.
Your gift will open new doors for our women as they battle for their sobriety and gain their independence from the bonds of addiction. Your gift will create new lives for women like these:
“Entering the program at Alpha Home was truly the turning point for me. It was there that I gained insight along with knowledge of the disease of addiction and received the tools I so desperately needed to venture onto the road of recovery. I am so thankful for the wonderful counselors and for the program available to me, as well as for the judge who sent me there. I was able to come to grips with internal conflicts and begin to resolve them and to face resentments I had been harboring that were slowly poisoning my entire being. I was also able to witness for the first time in my life, the impact that spirituality and the belief in a higher power truly has on a person's existence.”
"I am an addict and an alcoholic. CPS took my children from me. I thought my life was over and that I'd never have them again. I had been in and out of jail, prison, and treatment programs. Today, I owe to God my thanks, first and foremost. And to Alpha Home, thank you! You gave me back my life...and my children. Today, by His wonderful grace and mercy, I am a counselor in the making. I will praise God and thank Alpha Home forever."
A “new” gift is a contribution from a new donor, OR, the amount over and above the largest single gift in the prior two years from any previous donor.
Genevieve and Ward Orsinger established the Orsinger Foundation because they believed in helping people, inspiring people to be not only the best that they could be, but to be more than they thought they could be. They were known for their willingness to help those who were willing to help themselves.
