Whats going on at UA?


for peace

We are currently in need of any donations, especially tent donations.  Many of our members are currently experiencing homelessness and need shelter.  We will take tent donations in any shape, even if broken. 

Unlimited Alternatives is a drop in center in Kent County, MI. It is a place for acceptance, friendship and growth.  Our primary goal is to aid recovery by helping those living with a mental health issues or substance use disorder to regain whatever was lost in the onset of their mental health issues and substance use disorders. We offer education, activities, and peer support that encourage productivity, community inclusion, and independence in individuals actively aspiring for a quality life. “Quality” is defined differently from one individual to the next.  Whether it is owning your own home, reacquiring your own guardianship or getting out of the house for the first time this week, we help those individuals meet those goals setting them on the path to recovery one step at a time
