Thank You!

Thank you so much for everyone who attended Giving Through Song 2022 last Saturday! We are so grateful for the generosity from the guests that attended our first in-person event since 2019. Thank you to the sponsors, board members, staff and volunteers that made it possible. From the heartfelt story that Alpha client – Bella and her family told of her journey to living independently – to the outpouring of support of all that attended. Thank You! So many of you got in the spirit of the Roaring Twenties and made the night even more special. Check out the fun photobooth pics here https://alphasls.ejoinme.org/photos

If you didn’t have the opportunity to attend, you can still help us reach our goal of $100,000! Click her to contribute to the important work Alpha does for our community. https://alphasls.ejoinme.org/donate

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
