Alpha Size List

Alpha is 100% privately funded, and we do not charge tuition to those we serve.  We are always in need of financial support as well as food, clothing, and toys for the children.  We also have a list of special needs.  Alpha is a ministry for children in need due to abuse, neglect, being orphaned, troubled, or other forms of dysfunction.  Alpha provides the children with a loving family and opportunities for healing and growth.  A school learning center promotes excellence and success academically, sometimes for the first time, for each child.
