About Us

Alpha House is an emergency shelter for children and their families experiencing homelessness. We 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.

For 20 years, IHN at Alpha House has partnered with the community to shelter and support children and families experiencing homelessness in our community. During this time, our mission has remained constant and our programs have a single purpose – ending child and family homelessness. Emergency Shelter, Rapid Re-Housing, Children’s Services, Housing Placement Assistance, and Home-Based Support all support families as they secure and maintain stable housing.
