Alpha Community Center
The Alpha Community Center was started in 1984 as a mission unit of Sidney First United Methodist Church. We began by caring for the latchkey children in the church's neighborhood. As time went on services expanded to include a soup kitchen, emergency pantry, educational programming for kids and adults and emergency assistance for rent/utilities. We make referrals to other local agencies when we cannot help. As a United Way agency, we work closely with other UW agencies to provide services to the community. We are also represented on the Mayor's Homelessness Task Force and Metropolitan Housing Board.
