About Me

Why We Exist

The Other Option is a non-profit organization created to provide a helping hand to those in need. We provide small grants to "qualified" workers of any income who are at risk of slipping into proverty and for whom no other source of immediate assistance is available.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to provide individuals and families with the essentials needed to thrive at school, work and home by connecting those that need with those that have.

Social services you can count on

Our staff all share the same passion for an improved community – enabling us to come together as a team and, in the process, create a positive name for ourselves. No matter the department, the case, or the hour of the day, we will always put forth our best effort to help others improve their lives and situations. We want to be there for you or your loved ones, even when it feels like no one else is.
