The Alpha House of Tampa
This amazing organization’s mission is to empower pregnant and parenting women in crisis to realize their ability to break the cycles of poverty and abuse and create promising lives. The mission is accomplished by providing the mothers with safe housing, education, necessary counseling, parenting and life skills training, vocational training and assistance, and spiritual support which is known as 360 degrees of support!
This organization is dedicated to helping women in crisis realize their dreams of being great parents and providing their children with the things and opportunities they did not have. This is done through providing safe housing and facilitating access to work, education, substance abuse treatment, and personal growth.
The Alpha House offers “Lunch & Learns” and “Taste & Tours” as general information sessions and volunteer orientations. Please visit the “events” section on the website: www.thealphahouseoftampa.org for more information on these sessions and other community events. You are also able to drop off your donations for the mothers-to-be, babies, new mothers, and working mothers Monday-Friday from 8:30am-4:30pm at 201 S. Tampania Ave, Tampa, FL 33609 (813) 876-0657.
Jessica and Rachel were fortunate enough to go on an afterhour’s tour of the Alpha House on June 18th and talk with Brandy Wilkerson, the community relations coordinator, about all that they provide for expectant mothers and new mothers in their most important time of need!
Some of the members of High Hopes in High Heels attended a fundraiser at Datz Deli www.datzdeli.com on October 7th and all net-proceeds benefitted the Alpha House of Tampa. We were so happy to see Brandy from the Alpha House in attendance as well, helping to promote awareness and raise funds for this incredible, local organization! This was a fun filled evening that raised thousands of dollars for a wonderful, local women’s organization.
