Community Feature: Alpha in the Lynnwood Times

Part of the work we do at Alpha is the integration of our clients with the surrounding community.  From inter-agency social groups to movie nights to volunteer work, we continually offer services to help encourage an environment that fosters full quality of life for our clients.  One of these services is the implementation of our Community Access and Community Projects programs.

Our Community Projects Specialist, Colleen Heins, is always thinking of creative ways to get her network of friends and family involved with Alpha.  This is especially true when our clients had to quarantine in their homes in the midst of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.  Colleen’s son, Stephen, along with his Eagle Scouts Troop 49, chose to volunteer their time to help bring joy to our homebound clients.  Thank you for your contribution to Alpha’s community!

Alpha’s Shoreline Expansion

Alpha is excited to partner with TWG – an Indiana-based real estate developer – in their first affordable housing project in King County. They will begin construction in Shoreline of a 7-story building with 250 units called 192 Shoreline. The project is slated to begin in late 2021.

Alpha will have designated apartment units within the building for clients needing affordable housing in Shoreline, as well as a community facility space within the housing complex.  The facility will allow us to reach more individuals and continue our vision of an inclusive community.
