Top Chef Program Volunteer

Our cooking program serves current residents and other members of the Alexandria House community. It is a wonderful treat for women living in residence when volunteers come to cook dinner! Just like you, they have a busy life with work, school and kids and can use a “night off “ too! Dinner should be served promptly at 6:00 p.m. for about 30-40 people.

Emergency Fire Relief Wish List

On the morning of March 19, 2020, the smell of smoke was heavy in the air.  Our beautiful green house had a fire that started on the 2nd floor and spread to the 3rd floor as well. We are extremely grateful that everyone got out safely and nobody was hurt. All of the families who lived in the green house are being temporarily housed in a motel right around the corner. We are waiting to hear how extensive the damage is and how rapidly the families can return. In the meantime, we turn to you, our faithful supporters, and ask for you to keep us in your thoughts and prayers. This is an immediate appeal to help us in our time of need.
