Your donations enable Alternatives to make a difference in the lives of thousands of Chicago youth every year through programs ranging from computer training to peer conference, substance abuse counseling to dance.

At Alternatives, we pride ourselves not only on the effectiveness of our programs, but on the efficiency with which we offer our crucial services to youth and families. Eighty-one cents of every dollar donated goes directly into program costs, so you know that your donation specifically impacts a young person’s life.
