At The Alex we see the whole story of health.
We meet everyone where they are at, and treat all people with dignity and respect. If you are looking for support with your physical or mental health, addiction, food security, or housing stability, find out how you can become part of the Alex family.
We can help you find new ways to feel more secure and stable in your life, including good physical and mental health, food security and more.
Together, there is nothing but possibility. Our community is stronger when everyone has a chance to participate in activities that are meaningful to them.
We listen, we understand, and see each person for who they really are. Your story matters, and is part of your journey to wellness.
We know good health is so much more than just physical. We believe in wraparound care, and supporting of all the things that make us feel well.
“Without the Alex’s support, love, friendship, and services I would never have been able to be truly me. They gave me the tools and support to grow.”

What’s in a name?
The Alex was named after its original home in a local sandstone schoolhouse but has embraced its true identity through the root meaning of “Alex” as a defender of humankind.
Inspired by yes.
Because life’s not simple, our solutions rarely come ready-made. And that’s OK. We tailor them to the person before us. The open hearts and creative minds at the Alex see what’s really needed – and invent the solution. We’ve seen the incredible transformation of thousands of lives.
