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/

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
