Welcome to creating alternatives

Creating Alternatives is a day program for adults over the age of 18 with diverse abilities located in Woodbridge.

The organization stemmed from a grass-roots, parent-driven initiative that addresses a long-time need for support and programming for individuals with diverse abilities. Many program participants join the Alternatives family after graduating from high school, while transitioning to community life.

Creating Alternatives provides a safe and supportive environment where participants benefit from social, recreational and educational opportunities. Modalities that encourage independence, community integration, empowerment, individuality, health and well-being are at the forefront of all programming.
