Alpha Receives Kuni Grant.

It is with excitement and immense gratitude that we say thank you to the Kuni Foundation for funding Alpha’s Inclusion Housing Affordable I/DD Housing Project. The project involves acquiring and renovating 10 single family homes for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities throughout King, Snohomish, and Spokane counties. Over the last five years, our agency has grown by over 10 new Supported Living individuals per year. The demand for stable and affordable housing for the individuals we serve is a difficult issue to address, but with the funding received from the Kuni Foundation, we will be able to make significant headway toward addressing that issue. We are so grateful for the Kuni Foundation’s continued support and recognition of the value of our work.

Based in Vancouver, Washington, The Kuni Foundation strives to increase affordable, accessible, community-based housing options for people with IDD through grantmaking and the support of advocacy. For more information, please visit their website at: https://www.kunifoundation.org/

This year’s DSP Recognition Week is September 10th-16th.

The annual tradition of honoring all the hard working Direct Support Professionals who provide such great care to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities is happening September 10th-16th. This is a week to celebrate the remarkable and often unacknowledged work that DSP’s provide. Agencies all over the nation are preparing to show their appreciation and if you know a DPS, be sure to join in and show your appreciation too!

Thank You!

Thank you so much to everyone who attended Giving Through Song 2022! We are so grateful for the generosity of 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.
