Environmental Alternatives grew from one 6-bed home in 1981 to programs serving as many as  500 children in fifteen counties.

We received children from 41 counties, plus out-of-state, tribal, and private placements.

EA offers emergency and long term residential care for infants through eighteen year olds. Besides neglected and delinquent children, we accept: handicapped, developmentally disabled, medically fragile, and pregnant teens & child.

A streamlined admission policy accommodates placement agencies who need to make arrangements immediately.

We can usually screen and authorize admission during the initial phone contact.  Access to the system is made through any EA social worker, group home or county liaison worker.  We can further assist counties by arranging contracts for  emergency shelter services.

We do not discriminate because of race, color, religion, sex, age, handicap or national origin.
