Matt Rourke

Matt Rourke

Day Centre Coordinator

When Matt joined Alpha in June, he already knew the program worked. Having seen a friend of his come through Alpha and turn his life around, Matt came to us for help.

While his journey at Alpha House has only just begun, Matt has already taken great strides in getting his life together.

Along with attending groups provided by Alpha House, Matt spends his time attending N.A. meetings, hitting the gym and applying his past work experience by volunteering in our office.

Mark Wilson

Mark Wilson

Day Centre Coordinator

Mark is a great example of determination paying dividends. Mark first came to Alpha House in 2015, but after a great start, unfortunately slipped back into old ways.

However, Mark refused to give in, and he came back to Alpha at the beginning of the year with a determination to change his life for good.

Since coming back, Mark has been a shining example to others and is beginning to reap the rewards of sober living. Leaving behind his old life of car theft and drug use, Mark has turned a new leaf, having passed his driving license and bought his very own car.

Aside from driving to N.A. meetings and visiting his girlfriend, Mark likes to spend his time honing his skills on the turntables and living up to his alias "DJ Mark".

Day Centre Coordinator

Greg joined us at Alpha in April, and had since grown in leaps and bounds. Greg continues to impress us through his determination, his polite demeanour and his willingness to help others. When he’s not busy helping his fellow residents and the staff, Greg likes to keep fit and practice his Taekwondo.

As a Day Centre Coordinator, Greg makes sure residents complete their therapeutic duties and always seems to lend a helping hand while he’s at it.
