At Alpha Community Services, we address the basic human needs for shelter, dignity and self sufficiency by providing a range of housing opportunities and supportive services.
Alpha Community Services became a branch of the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA in 1992 and for the past 19 years our community has come to rely on us to provide a sense of community, hope and a safe place to belong to a growing population of homeless men, women and children. While many of our residents may not have any other support networks, the Y’s housing gave 892 individuals, including more than 400 children, a sense of community and a place to belong last year.
We welcome your support as we continue this important service and encourage you to become involved with the YMCA.

Building Community, Providing Support
The Alpha Community Services Y recently collaborated with ‘Sleep with a Purpose (SWAP)’ who generously donated beds for the residents. SWAP delivered 40 beds to help alleviate homelessness. The bed drop was made possible due to the sale of SWAP mattresses accomplished during the company’s launch at CT Better Bedding stores. The SWAP beds will be given to people moving from homeless shelters to transitional or permanent supportive housing. To see more: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mW1K7vgNDzE&feature=youtu.be
Jessica Tandy Apartments
The Jessica Tandy Housing is a newly constructed six unit development which provides structured housing and support services to six families. This beautiful housing facility sits on a previously vacant and undeveloped lot. It is adjacent to children’s playground and green space. The Jessica Tandy Housing location is ideal for families because there is a day care program and summer camp affiliated with the Bridgeport YMCA.
The Jessica Tandy Housing project was funded through a variety of sources. Residents will by paying no more than 30% income for rent. There is a restrictive covenant on the site requiring that supportive services be maintained for 20 years. Marketing of the units was accomplished through an affirmative fair housing outreach program.
