Location: 3737 Fifth Ave Ste #203 San Diego CA 92103 USA
Founded in 1986 as a simple project offering work opportunities for homeless individuals, today Alpha Project operates ten programs from three locations for homeless men and women. In addition, the agency has spawned the creation of 700 units of affordable rental housing projects and has sponsored home ownership programs. Recognized nationally by President George Bush as the country's 185th Point of Light, Alpha Projects focuses on empowering its clients to take personal responsibility for solving problems. Alpha Project strives not to manage homelessness, but rather to end it for its clients. The agency's programs do not aim at making homelessness easier, or less costly, or more tolerable. Alpha Project sees homelessness in part as a moral indictment of our community, and also as a solvable problem with a real end in sight. Alpha Project provides an opportunity -- clients provide the effort.
