Alive is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.


We are a nonprofit so that we can serve the entire community regardless of socioeconomic status as well as easily work with other local charities and organizations.

We have teen drop-in hours every day after school and during the summer that are free of charge.  Our teen events are done at cost.  Our adult services – such as meditation, dance, cooking, art – come at a charge but we offer free and reduced classes to the underserved.

Teens and adults can apply for financial aid. Please contact us for more information.
