The day program has started a comprehensive revision in light of this fresh approach to achieving success. The community rallied behind the idea, and after a vote involving people supported and staff, the day center got its new name, and renovation work began. This project was able to get off the ground because of the generous contributions made by members of the community. The centerpiece of this makeover is a sensory room that is completely outfitted and designed to accommodate people supported while also assisting them in developing and engaging their senses. Those who struggle with sensory processing issues can especially benefit from having a space like this one, which can bring them a sense of peace, focus and comfort. Alpha Opportunities has also begun new initiatives with the goal of educating and including the people it serves in the day-to-day activities of life.

As a result of all the recent changes and the expansion of Alpha Opportunities, there are now many employment options available, ranging from those involving direct support people to positions in management. Visit the website at to view all of the open positions.
