Manager, Wellness and Recovery Center

Neighborhood Properties (OH)

Alexandria Thomas is the Manager of the Wellness and Recovery Center (WRC) at Neighborhood Properties, the state of Ohio's first peer run mental health respite care center. As a Cleveland native, Alex is a graduate of the University of Toledo and has chosen to call Toledo home for the last 9 years where she has dedicated her life to community mental health and the needs of others. Currently, WRC employs up to 20 peers who use their own life experiences to help community members overcome challenges while reducing the need to emergency psychiatric and substance use services. Under Alex’s management, the WRC staff perform at a 96% satisfaction rate with guests who have described their stay as “relaxing” and “refreshing” amongst other things. The WRC was also the recipient of the 2019 Innovation and Excellence award provided by The Greater Toledo Community Foundation and The Andersons. However, when Alex is not working or volunteering in the community, you will likely find her at home where she lives with her Fiancé Thomas, her two dogs Sonni and Petey, and her cat better known as “Kitty”.
