Dear committed members of our community.

I wish I could say that we have solved the problem of housing insecurity in Washtenaw County and that we could move on to using our time to be of service elsewhere, but alas, that is not the case. Our generous hearts and time are appreciated now more than ever.

Please consider signing up to either plan and prepare a meal during the week, help with serving and cleaning up or supervising the children in the evening so that the parents can regroup.


Not available to volunteer for a slot during this week. We can still use your support.


In addition to the preparing and dropping off meals we also provide additional items needed at the shelter such as cleaning, toiletries and pantry items. Please consider making a donation to help us with those costs. You can do so by following this link for Temple Beth Emeth. choose the Social Action Fund near the bottom of the form – click on YES for making a Tribute and then write in Alpha House.

With heart and gratitude,

Rachel Egherman, volunteer coordinator Temple Beth Emeth
