Creating Alternatives Go Fund Me


One of our goals is to create alternatives for adults with developmental disabilities so that independence and decision making skills can develop into opportunities.


Creating Alternatives provides an environment that educates on life, social, and health skills that can improve the quality of life for our program participants.


We offer volunteer, employment, and community connections to our program participants that can provide an equal work and life balance.


We assist in the transition into adulthood for a person with developmental disabilities in a family centered atmosphere with traditional values that encourage success, respect, and inclusion.
