STATEMENT FROM THE CEO

"Dear Alpha Home Supporters,



We have had a tremendous positive impact on our community, especially because substance abuse disorder is the number one driver of health care costs in Texas.

The Alpha Home Board of Directors has grown from an Organizing Board to a Governing Board. Our Senior Staff Management Team has more than 100 years of combined recovery and 64.5 years of tenure with Alpha Home. Our treatment and intervention programs served more than 800 ladies in 2013 and their families, including 1,200 children. Our transitional living project, the Recovery Support Home in a collaboration with Crosspoint, is operating at capacity with 15 ladies in residence. The Family First Project is providing education and support to more families and educating the community on the prevention of
fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. Our Outpatient and Residential programs are attracting counseling interns from four major universities. Our Student-Run Free Clinic, in partnership with Dr. Richard Usatine and UT Health Science Center-San Antonio, continues to grow, this year adding dental, psych, and nursing services to our clients.

Without the support of our friends, loyal donors, and community partners, our clients who work hard to give back to their families and our community, our incredible alumnae, our dedicated, compassionate employees and friends, our mission would not be possible. Thank you for believing in our mission. Without you, there would be no Alpha Home.
