Description of Organizations Services:
Our purpose at the Alpha House is to provide a shelter for homeless men. The Alpha House is God's house and is run accordingly. We have bible studies on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Wednesday bible studies are open to the public. Everyone that stays with us is required to attend these bible studies as well as attend a church of their choice on Sunday. Our focus is the re-building process to restore these men to what God had intended them to be. We provide counseling, encouragement, medical assistance, job placement and provide transportation for those employed. We also provide training in basic living skills. Once a person leaves the shelter, continued assistance is provided them in making the transition. Although our main focus is the shelter, it doesn't stop there. We provide counseling and assistance for people outside the shelter. Being homeless is a state of being. You can live in a house and still be homeless. This is an outreach ministry for Mountain Home and we will reach out to anyone who is in need. It is important to restore the family. You can help us rebuild what the world has torn down. We are an IRS approved Non-Profit Organization. Contributions can be made monthly, semi-annually or once a year. You will receive a receipt each time a donation is made and at the end of the calendar year, all contributors will receive a statement summarizing all of their contributions. We welcome you in this ministry and hope that you will feel as blessed as we are to be able to reach out to those who are standing right next to us. Your contributions will help us to help others. ...(Read More)
