Alpha Angels

Our hope for each of our Alpha House moms and their children is that they will receive the support and gain the skills they need to succeed when they leave Alpha House. We realize that a lavish holiday-donate-christmas-givingholiday at Alpha House sets up unrealistic expectations that cannot possibly be met when the moms move out on their own. And like every family, we try  to focus on the true spirit of the holidays.

To help achieve this goal, we use the Alpha Angel program as a way to provide gifts to our families while teaching the moms valuable life skills in the process. The Alpha Angels program is designed to empower each mom to provide a meaningful holiday experience for her family. Our moms can learn  how to manage a budget, set priorities and establish reasonable expectations for their children during the holidays.

 

Alpha Angel Holiday Gift Giving Program

The holidays have arrived and the Artemis Guild elves of Alpha House of Tampa have been busy at work. If you want to join in the festivities by donating presents for our Mothers and their children through the Alpha Angels Holiday Giving Program, by making a financial gift, or by becoming an elf yourself (ie – volunteer), please click here: http://signup.com/go/bYS84Q.

Alpha House staff will assist the mom’s with their shopping within the budget of $50 per child to  develop the money management skills they will need to  know when they leave Alpha House of Tampa.

If you would like to be a part of the Alpha Angels program and are unable to do the shopping yourself, we welcome  donations of gift cards in the amount of $25 or less  from: Target, Wal-Mart, Sears, JCPenney, Victoria’s Secret,  Aeropostal, Claire’s, Starbucks, Panera, or Papa John’s Pizza.
