Alpha Project for the Homeless
November 7, 2010

I have been a proud member of the Alpha Board for quite a while and cannot say enough good things about the organization. They have the most loyal staff, some of them graduates of the Casa Rafael program . The program rehabilitates the homeless and brings them back into the workforce thus giving them a new start on a productive life. I have hired Alpha graduates to do various jobs for me and these people have the best work ethic I have witnessed in many a year. They appreciate the work and do a terrific job. Alpha also finds housing and various medical services for the homeless many of whom are senior citizens who cannot live on their Social Security. Other services for drug and alcohol abuse, mental disorders and work training are readily available. All of these services are a win win situation for many of the homeless and the city of San Diego. Bob McElroy, the founder of Alpha Project is truly a gift to the people of San Diego as well as the staff of the most dedicated people I have ever know. Alpha instills in its clients a sense of self worth and the desire to help others. This is a huge recipe for success and a great gift fo humanity.
