2013 Charity of the Year
Alpha Home, Inc., is a non-profit treatment center providing specialized services to chemically dependent women.
At Alpha Home, we treat our clients like you would people in a hospital. They are sick women, not bad women. If they could stop using drugs or alcohol on their own, they would. We help them change their lives and recover from addiction. Addiction is three-fold—body, mind, and spirit. At Alpha Home, we treat all three, not just the physical addiction, but the complete woman.
Alpha Home was born in 1965 from the heart of one woman, Hulene Dempsey, who wanted to make a difference in the lives of alcoholic women. With the inspiration of Hulene, Alpha Home began as a mission of Trinity Baptist Church at 208 E. Magnolia, with room to house 10 women. In the first 10 months of operation, 54 women lived and worked at Alpha Home, and then went on to lead productive lives. Today, Alpha Home serves more than 800 women annually.
Now into our 45th year, Alpha Home’s mission continues to provide spiritually based substance abuse treatment and support to women and their families in order to prepare them to become more productive members of society. We do this by instilling into staff and clients the values of spirituality, integrity, discipline, dedication, and productivity.
The good news is that treatment works. Recovery benefits everyone.
