Since 1971, Alternatives has facilitated personal development, strengthened family relationships, and enhanced our community’s well being. Reaching 3,000 young people and their families each year, our programs focus on leadership development, prevention of violence and substance abuse, academic enrichment and counseling.
Fig films is honored to work with Alternatives to create a short that celebrates the organizations 40 years of work, looking into the future.
This film was screened at a fundraiser for Alternatives on March 19th 2011 @ Blue Cross Blue Shield in Chicago, Il.
