Alpha Project:

This year, Canyon Springs Church is partnering with the Alpha Project on  our Blessing Bag event. The mission of the Alpha Project is to empower individuals, families, and communities by providing work, recovery and support services to people who are motivated to change their lives and achieve self-sufficiency. This organization is very familiar with the care and keeping of the homeless of San Diego.
The Alpha Project also requires us to complete a simple Volunteer Form  when working with them in the homeless village. This form may be accessed online, and we will have them available for completion at The Cove.
