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.

Donate And Change Lives This Holiday Season

The holidays are around us. It’s a time for togetherness with family and friends but for many including our Alpha Home Alumnae it wasn’t always that way.

Valarie is an Alpha Home Alumnae and says she knows she could have lost it all. She once overdosed and was addicted to pain killers and heroin.

She now lives in a sober living house, with her 9-year-old daughter Kaylen. Valarie calls her little girl her “partner” and credits her for helping her stay strong.

Valarie and her daughter, Kaylen (2017)

“I had everything going on for me on the outside,” Valarie said. “But inside it was so miserable and dark.”

Valarie says one Christmas she ended up spending all of her saved money for presents and used it instead to purchase heroin.

“On Christmas morning, I didn’t want to wake up my daughter,” she said recalling the holiday. “I felt shamed, guilty. I’ll never forget that feeling of not wanting to wake her up. I got sober after that because it was so devastating.”

Now sober, Valarie says she happily wakes up her daughter on Christmas morning to make cinnamon rolls. It’s their special new tradition, she says.

Help those who need help like Valarie and have your donation matched this year.

As a reminder, two generous donors are matching all gifts that come in between now and December 29th.

Make your donation today to help keep hope alive for our Alpha Home clients this season. Help restore holidays to what they should be for so many families.
