Make a Difference for Alternatives For Children


We believe our success is attributable to the fact that individuals like you, have found a common bond in our mission and gain satisfaction in knowing that you are playing a vital role in making a positive difference in the lives of children with disabilities, and their families. There are so many ways in which you can have a meaningful impact on the children at Alternatives For Children. In addition to our annual fundraising activities – the Alternatives For Children Annual Golf Outing and the Classic & Sports Car Rally – and our Annual Campaign and Capital Campaign - Alternatives For Children seeks to raise funds to support our Special Projects Wish List.

We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.
Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president of the Children's Defense Fund

School house shape upSchool House Shape Up

Our four locations, housing 400 students per year, require ongoing and annual maintenance to operate both safely and efficiently.

All those busy little fingers of the children as they walk through the halls leave our corridor walls looking somewhat less than pristine by the end of the school year.  By donating to School House Shape Up your dollars could be used to ensure that we begin each school year with our classrooms and therapeutic areas looking brand spanking new!Routine playground maintenance

Or, your gift could help us with the routine maintenance that our very busy outdoor playground areas require.

Your gift to School House Shape Up would help underwrite some of the costs associated with typical building and grounds maintenance operating expenses.
