Your financial support is more important than ever.

Thank you for making the mission of Alpha Resource Center possible!




Alpha Resource Center empowers individuals with intellectual

and developmental disabilities throughout Santa Barbara County by

supporting families,

creating opportunities,

and fostering belonging.

In the early 1950s, three mothers of children with developmental disabilities began to change the landscape by pursing educational opportunities for their children.

Their success grew into the Alpha Resource Center of today!

Now, there are new mothers (and fathers and people with developmental disabilities) seeking similar groundbreaking opportunities for their children (and themselves) in fields like visual arts, culinary arts and food service, performing arts, job support, and the list goes on.

The specifics have changed, but the desire and motivation remain the same.

Your gift to Alpha Resource Center will make the dreams of tomorrow possible!
