Mission Statement

Serving La Plata and San Juan Counties, 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.

We strive to be open, inclusive, and helpful toward survivors from all walks of life.
