Alpha House Society is a non-profit, charitable agency that provides safe and caring environments for individuals whose lives are affected by alcohol and other substance dependencies

What We Do

Alpha House has been operating in Lethbridge, Alberta since 2019. Our work focuses on the safety and wellbeing of men and women struggling with addictions as well as mental and physical health issues. We operate a Shelter and Stabilization Centre, along with Outreach Programs. We are also temporarily operating an isolation hotel as part of our COVID-19 response.

Who We Are

Alpha House has a long history of innovating and evolving to meet the changing needs of our clients, the province, and the increasing complexities of homelessness and drug use.

Who We Help

Our work is a direct intersection of homelessness, addiction, and mental health. All of our clients’ lives have been impacted by alcohol and other drug dependencies.

How We Help

Our services make up a continuum of care to support clients based on their needs. We operate a Shelter, Stabilization Centre, and a Recovery Coach Program, and have operated temporary COVID-19 Isolation Units and Transitional Housing for individuals experiencing homelessness.

Alpha House Society’s work positively impacts the Lethbridge community by providing help to vulnerable citizens. In doing so, we divert individuals away from unnecessary uses of health care, criminal justice, and emergency systems by building relationships and connecting clients to more appropriate community resources.
