Since 1998 Creating Alternatives has been committed to serving the needs of adults with developmental disabilities.

We are a registered charitable organization dedicated to improving the lives of people in need of special services and support. (Registered Charity No. 864168711RR0001)

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.
