“The best case managers, “ Bob McElroy says, “are those who can sit on the other side of a desk and relate to a person who walks through the door seeking help. Nearly all our staff are people who have been there, done that. That’s why we are successful.” Since 1986, The Alpha Project has shown that when down-and-out people are given opportunities and support, many of them become community assets, rather than liabilities. Numbers tell just part of the story. Every day, The Alpha Project’s programs serve more than 2,000 homeless people. More than 12,000 different men, women, and children access one or more of their services each year. Their newest program launched in 2006, responds to the high mortality rate among the homeless. Their Hospice for the Homeless program provides assistance to veterans, homeless people, and indigent people facing terminal or chronic illness.
If your heart beats for the homeless, help make miracles happen.
