Four times a year TBE and St. Clare’s partner together to provide meals and activities for the residents of Alpha House for a week. Run by the Interfaith Hospitality Network, Alpha House provides more than just a bed and a roof for families experiencing housing insecurity. Their goal is to fully support the families in securing and maintaining their own homes.  When we provide meals and activities it allows the staff to focus on providing a full spectrum of support to ensure success when the families move out. This is an excellent volunteer opportunity for groups of friends, families and individuals.

Our next week is coming up December 18 – 24, 2023. Each night, we need volunteers to plan and prepare a meal, help with clean up, and supervise activity time.


Each quarter, we purchase needed supplies and food items to re-stock the shelter shelves. We need ongoing donations to cover the costs of these items. To make a financial donation that allows us to provide these needed supplies and pantry items, please follow and choose the Social Action Fund near the bottom of the form – click on YES for making a Tribute and then write in Alpha House. 

In 2022 Alpha House sheltered 34 families and provided services to 91 families in the community. Help us make 2023 a year of peace and support for even more families.
