Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    To diversify funding streams

    To repair all capital assets

    Create sustainable income stream
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    We have changed the way we do fundraising. We have a donor centered fundraising strategy rather than a transactional one.

    We are creatively thinking of other funding streams to fund the renovation of buildings. For instance, we won a 100k grant from Impact SA to renovate our small residential home.

    We are looking for ways to increase other streams to create a sustainable income stream. We are looking at insurance and social enterprises.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    We have different board committees that work tirelessly to help meet these goals.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    We have plans and bench marks that tell us where we are and where we need to be. The board and the committees meet monthly to discuss the status of our progress to complete the goals.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    These goals are always ongoing.

    We have increased individual donors by making our fundraising strategy a more donor focused one.

    We have increased our funding overall and we are in the steps to create a more sustainable funding stream.

Ms. Angela White

STATEMENT FROM THE CEO

"Dear Alpha Home Supporters,


We have had a tremendous positive impact on our community, especially because substance use 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 individuals and impacting more than 1,200 children. 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.
"
