The mission of Alternative Horizons is to provide support and alternatives to survivors of domestic violence and their families while striving to strengthen our community through education and prevention outreach. Because domestic violence knows no boundaries of gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity or socioeconomics, we are open and inclusive toward all.


Alternative Horizons services are free, confidential and offered in English and Spanish.


We offer a 24-hour hotline staffed by volunteers; bilingual weekly support groups for women and children; court advocacy in criminal court and legal assistance for divorce and child-custody cases through our Bridges of Hope legal project; and education and outreach to the community as well as to middle-school and high-school students.


Los servicios son gratis, confidenciales y ofrecidos en inglés y español.
