ALIVE provides training and support for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Trained staff and a supportive group environment enable participants to hold paying jobs, become involved in community activities, use community resources, increase independent living skills and develop self-advocacy. ALIVE is committed to helping people live productive and enriching lives.
