The Abundant Living For All Foundation (ALFA) is an all-volunteer non-profit 501c3 made up of families and friends of people with autism and developmental disabilities in Southwest Illinois. ALFA founders joined together in 2006 to meet to a critical need: Improving services for adults with special needs in Southwest Illinois. ALFA invited Trinity Services, Inc., a non-profit of New Lenox, Ill. to help achieve this goal by extending services to the Metro East. ALFA assisted as Trinity began adult residential and learning programs in St. Clair County in 2007. In gratitude, ALFA remains Trinity’s all-volunteer partner in Southwest Illinois. Since 2007 Alfa has raised over $300,000 for programs, facilities and materials for the people served by Trinity. More notably, hundreds of volunteers from Mascoutah, O’Fallon, Belleville, Freeburg and throughout the area have given thousands of hours sharing their talents in the arts, horticulture, culinary arts, sports, academics and leisure. With ALFA’s help, Trinity continues to offer and expand life-enhancing programs not afforded by state funding. The result continues to be exceptional opportunities for learning and personal growth and happiness for people with disabilities.
