Stories From People We Serve




Roy worked as a carpenter. Struggling with depression, he found it difficult to get out of bed. His sister told him about Alternatives, where he found support.  His case worker helped him find access to medical treatment and supportive housing.


Currently he is working toward becoming a Peer Specialist so he can help others coping with mental illness.  

"Helping others makes

me feel better about myself."

Lorraine was working as an administrative assistant at a large company and was also a mom to three children.  She was struggling to cope with the stresses of everyday life. 


Through Alternatives case management and support services she found she could do more than survive – she could thrive.

“I realized I am not just an independent person. I am interdependent.”  

John, one of four adult children, loves riding his bike, playing piano and eating at the local diner (he’s a Jersey Boy!).  Like his siblings, John wanted to live an independent life as an adult, his developmental disability presented obstacles his siblings did not have to face. 

Working with his family and staff, John now lives in his own apartment, is employed in a job he is proud of and has a full and productive life.

“I work with people who need help out in the community.  We deliver Meals on Wheels”
