The International Order of Alhambra is a Catholic Fraternal Order serving the developmentally disabled. Our service includes donations to private schools educating developmentally disabled children and providing them with vocational skills; participating in Special Olympics; conducting recreation, field day programs, and summer camps; providing field trips, boat rides, zoo trips, circus trips, picnics, Christmas parties, dinner dances, etc.
A major purpose of the Order of Alhambra is also to identify, mark, preserve, and commemorate Catholic historical places, events, and persons of international or regional importance. Over 160 such memorials have been established in Canada and the United States.
Sociability is a dominant characteristic of the Order. It flows from another stated purpose of the Order, namely, “To promote social, fraternal and intellectual associations and through its Caravans provide a practical means to form enduring fellowship and friendship among its members.” The Order is a “fun” organization dedicated to doing worthwhile charitable work
