“Alternatives treats people like family.”
This is something I heard a lot while visiting the current location for Alternatives Community Program Services in Peterborough, Ontario, a program that supports over 250 people and their families each year.
Alternatives provides opportunities and outcomes for learning and skill development in the areas of employment volunteerism, recreation and community involvement. We foster a sense of belonging for people of all abilities. We open doors to help people realize their full potential.
Alternatives has outgrown their current location, and to serve even more people and the community, they’re moving to their new building on Braidwood in Peterborough. Right now, they’re working toward getting the new building ready for access, raising funds to do so, and educating the community about what they do and how they can help.
