Alpha House – A Shelter for Children and Their Families

Run by Interfaith Hospitality Network


Alpha House is an emergency shelter for children and their families experiencing homelessness. They are located in Washtenaw County, Michigan.

The impact of our programs is simple – families gain housing and remain together as a family. With our ongoing support and advocacy as needed, families remain securely housed, better able to cope with ongoing challenges and more connected to community resources.

West Side Church, along with other church communities in the county, provide volunteer assistance one week every 6 months at the Alpha house facility.


Next Shelter Week coming soon…Please sign up!

SHELTER WEEK for West Side will be MON – MON. Jan.. 12-19, 2015. Again, we have the opportunity to serve at Alpha House, Reaching Out in Christian Love, to homeless families.
