Alternatives Institute

At Alternatives we believe the people who share their lives with us may be the ones in our families and communities with the most knowledge about complications of love and hurt, and, the most skill at responding. We define “family” and “community” with great care around diversity. We work collaboratively with others in our communities committed to  (1) addressing replications of violence within our social responses to violence, and
(2) developing helpful practices together with individuals, families and communities.
