Alpha Home celebrates birthday with family-friendly celebration

A free family-friendly celebration at the Ruble Center was held over the weekend to celebrate Alpha Home’s 52nd Birthday.

“We wanted to organize this event as a way of to say thank you to our wonderful neighbors, donors, staff and volunteers that have supported us throughout the years,” said Angela White, Alpha Home CEO.

The event was attended by over 150 supporters of Alpha Home and included free food, a moon bounce, paletas and games. Tom Kinsey from Learn Nature, an ecology educator, also took part in the celebration.

Alpha Home would like to thank H-E-B for providing the food and its amazing volunteers who helped make it a success.  It was a great time! ¡Viva Alpha Home!

Alpha Home celebrates renovation of Camden residence for clients

Alpha Home and Impact San Antonio members had a lot to celebrate today with the ribbon cutting of Alpha Home’s renovated Camden residence for clients!

The renovation was made possible by a $100,000 grant given by the generosity of Impact San Antonio members in October 2016.

The grant allowed for substantial improvements to the residence, including the upgrade of four bathrooms and five bedrooms, a kitchen renovation and the replacement of a wooden deck.

“We were thrilled to be a winner of the grant from Impact San Antonio,” said Angela White, Alpha Home CEO. “We’re proud to say these renovations have created a light filled, comfortable home for our residential female clients and also those in our educational Family First Program.”

Alpha Home’s Camden Residence serves up to 16 women needing drug and alcohol treatment and support at any given time. In a year, the residence serves 120 clients in this program and averages 336 clients in our Family First Program.
