Alpha Home Impact Report- 2016-2017


Lives You Have Transformed

V

alarie had everything and then lost it all due to her addiction. Today she now lives in a sober living home and is an advocate for Alpha Home. “I had everything going for me on the outside,” she said. “But inside it was so miserable and dark.” Valarie recalls the time she woke up in the back of an ambulance, just having overdosed on heroin, but it still wasn’t enough to make her quit. She credits her daughter as the force that helped make her turn her life around. “Recovery has done so much for me and has repaired my family relationships,” Valarie says. “I used to think I don’t deserve this life. This isn’t the life I’m supposed to live. I have a new life because of Alpha Home.”

M

elissa gave up alcohol two years ago and is working toward earning her Master’s degree.

Her life was changed through her time at Alpha Home and she is now an active Alpha Home Alumane, attending Tuesday night meetings and helping with community service projects. Melissa says her life is brimming with happiness now. She is married and now has a baby boy! “Life is about the moments with those you love,” Melissa says. “Moments to be happy, in awe, to be brave and adventurous.”

L

orie has been an Alpha Home Outpatient Counselor since 2011 and is a proud Alpha Home Alumnae.

She says if it was not for Alpha Home and God, she would not be where she is today. She loves working for Alpha Home, the place that helped her turn her life around. Most recently, she celebrated 12 years of sobriety. The favorite part of her job is walking a client through their recovery. “I understand what it’s like, it’s hard,” Lorie says. “I want to be the person who shows how possible it is.” Alpha Home Impact Report- 2016-2017

Patricia:

Heather:

“Alpha taught me how to live again. How to love myself, cope with the past and present, how to treat others and, most importantly, how to treat myself. I am forever grateful for this establishment and all the wonderful things they do for people like me. Whenever I meet a troubled girl, I refer her to Alpha Home.”

“I truly want to thank God for Alpha Home, who gave me tools to use in my new normal. And I highly recommend anyone who needs to arrest this disease of addiction to come to Alpha where a new beginning can start.”

Adriana:

“My daughter was there and Alpha Home helped her get through her drug addiction. I am so happy for them helping our daughter.”

Alpha Home Impact Report- 2016-2017


2016-2017 Year In Review It was such a memorable year here at Alpha Home. Take a look at some of our main highlights along the way...

September 2016 Inside Out Art Show

October 2016 Impact San Antonio Grant

November 2016 Charity Ball Updates

An art show in September featured more than 50 art pieces from staff and Alumnae. The event was held for National Recovery Month and Alpha Home’s Anniversary to raise money to support Alpha Home clients.

Alpha Home won a $100,000 grant that allowed for substantial improvements to its Camden residence, including the upgrade of four bathrooms and five bedrooms, a kitchen renovation and the replacement of a wooden deck.

Alpha Home received a Charity Ball grant to renovate and update two outdoor children’s playgrounds and an indoor children’s playroom. The playground sets are used during playtime among children who visit their mothers on weekends.

February 2017 Doorways of Hope Luncheon

April 2017 Alpha Home Birthday

May 2017 Big Give San Antonio

Alpha Home was honored to have actor/producer, Danny Trejo, as the featured keynote speaker at its 11th Annual Dooways of Hope luncheon. The event was the most successful to date.

To celebrate Alpha Home’s 51st Birthday, a family-friendly event was held as a way of saying thank you to Alpha Home’s wonderful neighbors, donors, staff and volunteers who have supported the organization throughout the years.

For Big Give 2017, Alpha Home staff made a spoof video of “Beauty and the Beast” aptly titled “Beauty and the Big Give.” Donations raised through Big Give were used for the purchase of a much needed passenger van for Alpha Home.

Dr. Richard P. Usatine Wellness Center

In November 2017, Alpha Home celebrated the renaming of its Wellness Center to honor its founder, Dr. Richard P. Usatine. The center was founded in 2005 by Dr. Usatine, a Professor of Family and Community Medicine at UT Health San Antonio, working in collaboration with a group of medical students. The center fills a gap in the health care of Alpha Home residential clients and also allows medical students and other health science students to provide compassionate services, supervised by faculty doctors, while learning about substance use and recovery. 8

The faculty and students provide five different clinical services, covering primary care, gynecology, physical therapy, psychiatry and dental. “The impact to the overall health of our female clients is immeasurable, for many it is the first time for a well woman check,” said Angela White, Alpha Home CEO. “Clients are treated with respect. The clinic is priceless.”

Filling a need: • The Dr. Richard P. Usatine Wellness Center had 974 clinic visits between September 1, 2016 - August 31, 2017. • According to a UT Health San Antonio study, the center saves our community $245,000 in emergency visits alone. • The Wellness Center trains many new doctors, dentists, physical therapists and nurses who will become better health professionals with the ability to have empathy for some of the most vulnerable members of our society. Alpha Home Impact Report- 2016-2017


Lifting The Stigma Through Art Alpha Home is proud to be a partner to help lift the stigma of addiction with a project titled, Letter to My Mother, a visual and literary body of work. Letter to My Mother started in August of 2013, when Branislav Jankic (project director) and Goran Macura (project producer), set off on their quest, traveling the United States for 11 days, (1,200 miles by ground and 7,518 by air), visiting 6 states, including a stop in San Antonio, Texas, and photographing 40 women and their children. A short film was shot during the first exhibition of the project in New York City, June 2016.

Months later, Alpha Home partnered with Branislav, Goran and the project’s director, Monika Jagaciak, to help debut the short film at the Santikos Palladium in early 2017. In August 2017, Alpha Home again teamed up with Branislav, Monika and Goran to help exhibit the art project at the Texas Association of Addiction Professionals (TAAP) Conference. The art exhibition project is currently on display at Alpha Home’s Ruble Center and open to the public.
