Community Life For People Of All Abilities
A warm and comfortable home. A satisfying and purposeful job. Friends you can rely on. Thanks to the help and support of Alternatives, hundreds of Central Massachusetts residents with psychiatric or developmental disabilities are leading full and successful lives within their communities- lives that include real homes, real jobs and real relationships. For 40-years, we have been committed to offering not just superior services, but real opportunities for people of all abilities to live, work and learn together.
