Thank you for supporting Giving Through Song 2023!

We enjoyed another year of Giving Through Song at Block 41 on October 21st. The stunning venue is always a delight that supports our event so well. It was a fun, full evening with music from Seattle’s Blue Wave Band, photobooth fun from Tipsy-Trailer LLC, and a tasteful meal provided by Cameron Catering. It was great to see so many people got into this year’s theme of “Mad Men”/1960’s!

The evening also was beneficial to Alpha as we were able to raise the funds necessary to keep us moving toward our goals. We are so grateful to the community that continually supports the mission and vison of Alpha. Every year is full of new challenges that we must face and we would not be able to do so without your support!

DSP Recognition Week 2022 – September 11-17

It’s Direct Support Professional Recognition Week! Started in 2008, this is our field’s way of recognizing the critical support and care that DSPs provide to people who have developmental disabilities. They play an invaluable role in the daily life, activities, and health of the people they support, and are key to making the community more accessible for our clients. This week we will be recognizing the efforts of our DSPs through weekly raffle drawings, bags full of Alpha swag, and outdoor Barbeques for each Branch!

ANCOR and Relias are committed to the needs and support of Direct Support Professionals around the country. If you would like to know more about ANCOR and Relias and what they do, you can visit their websites at
