About Us

Our Vision

Alpha Management Group policies reflect that we are committed to providing quality services with individuals with identified disabilities. We choose to see the whole person, as opposed to defining a person by their challenges or identified disabilities. We're committed to furthering the cultural competency of our staff and expanding their understanding of individuals with disabilities who may have difficulty accessing services. As defined in our policies, cultural competency refers to the capacity of professionals to understand how their own experiences, identities, values, and beliefs are different from others and could potentially impact the desired therapeutic outcome of the consumers.

 

Specifically, individuals may have different views or values based on their own experiences with culture, race, ethnicity, age, religion, sexual orientation, disability, and socio-economic status. In addition to understanding the stigma of receiving mental health services with certain populations, employees are challenged to understand how their own experiences, history, and identities may impact the desired therapeutic outcomes of the consumers. Inherent in development of cultural competency are the awareness and appreciation of differences, as well as an understanding of how discrimination and injustice still exists in our community.

Our Mission

Alpha Management Services, Inc. is committed to providing needed services to people who are emotionally/ behaviorally, physically and/ or mentally challenged thus allowing them to remain in their community. We will always respond in a prompt and respectful manner to any request and/ or concerns by the people we are serving. We will ensure that staff is carefully trained to provide services in a manner which enhances dignity and promotes the welfare and development of each person being served.
