The Alderson Hospitality House supports the women of the Federal Prison Camp Alderson and their friends and families. We believe in the importance of visitors during incarceration. Our volunteers and staff, through donations, demonstrate this belief by providing temporary lodging, meals, transportation assistance, information and support.
Since AHH opened in 1977, there have been more than 50,000 overnight guests from all over the world. We do not charge for our services, but rely only on the generosity of our guests and friends of the house for operating funds. We are not part of, nor do we receive any assistance from the Federal Bureau of Prisons, any church or religious organization, any government entity or any corporation. Our staff, who live and work at AHH, and Board of Directors, who are local community leaders, are all volunteers.
Mosaic on the back porch
We’re going to beautify the back patio, and we need your help! Many of you are familiar with this area behind the playroom and next to the kitchen, and have spent a moment relaxing or visiting with other guests at one of the tables. Our plan is to make this space more interesting by designing mosaic patio tiles to install where the slate squares are.
We need your input on the design! Any that have to do with the house and what it represents to you are welcomed. Just sketch it in as much detail as you can provide, and bring it to Chrissy, Kathleen or Brian.
Jo Perez, a stained glass artist based outside Alderson (www.darkhollowglass.com), has donated a large variety of beautiful glass pieces for this project. Once one of the designs has been selected, we may be asking your help to create and install the final product.
We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
