Mission Statement

ALIVE! combines faith and love into action to help needy Alexandria residents.


Currently, a number of ALIVE"s programs are on hold, while others are popping up. This is due to the shutdowns due to the virus. We rely on donations to maintain these programs. Checking our website under the "get involved" tab
is the best way to track our initiatives https://www.alive-inc.org/get-involved-volunteer-in-alexnadria-va/ Or

To register for these progams go to www.volunteeralexandria.org. You must register in advance to volunteer. For more info contact the Food Program Manager: Ann Patterson:703-518-5152

Would you recommend ALIVE!?

by Beth S. (September 8, 2010)
My parents were involved in the early days of ALIVE!as representatives of Temple Beth El and it is an outstanding example of the true meaning of religious tolerance. In these days when the Muslim community is publicly threatened and that view is considered acceptable by a large segment of the population, it is important that we take a stand and continue to work together for the greater good.
