Alpha House Inc., a faith-based transitional home for women leaving incarceration, had its first volunteer training in Providence House, Oak Ridge.
Prior to the training, an architectural conceptual drawing for a permanent structure for the ministry was unveiled.
A capital campaign to fund construction will be initiated in the near future.
The ministry is also planning to open its “Alpha BitZ” Thrift Store on May 1 at 5110 Harriman Hwy. (Hwy. 62) in the former Morrow Furniture Store building.
