ALIA (Agape Love in Action, Inc.), a nonprofit organization hosted their first fundraiser on June 13, 2015, in Haymarket, VA to increase community awareness about the organization and its mission. Proceeds from the event will be used to support community outreach efforts that include helping the homeless in Prince William County. The Help Our Homeless drive is an ongoing effort that has been a primary focus of the organization’s founder since 2009.

ALIA’s mission is to help those in need. Motivated by our faith, we serve alongside the poor and oppressed as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love for all people. ALIA, which recently received 501(c) 3 nonprofit status, supports several outreach initiatives that include, Hope in a Bag, Wisdom Meets Technology, Business Battle Buddy, and Reach 2 Feed.  In addition, ALIA sponsors community outreach and development programs which bring together local service providers and the people in the community who require assistance. ALIA endeavors to address the physical, emotional, mental, social, and economic wholeness in individuals, which impacts families and changes communities. ALIA works collaboratively with faith-based, philanthropic, government, corporate, academic, and community service organizations to meet the basic human needs of all people by providing tools to enhance whole lives.

For the past twelve years, Corliss Udoema, Founder of ALIA, has sponsored “Bless Others during June” initiatives. The initiatives which run the entire month of June are Ms. Udoema’s way of celebrating her birthday. The initiatives vary, but there is one constant, the goal of being a blessing to others. This year, the goal is to bless the Prince William County Homeless Shelter, and other local homeless in our community. Please help us by donating wash cloths, towels, and sheets along with clothing and shoes. You may also donate financially via check or pay online through PAYPAL at our website  Donated items can also be dropped off at the office during regular business hours (8:30 to 4:30 Monday through Friday).

Thank you in advance for making a positive difference! ALIA….. a loving heart and a helping hand to those in need.
