Alliance Program


For more information, contact Foundation Director and Alliance Chairman

The River Deep Alliance is an important aspect of our organization. It is an innovative and exciting collaboration among complementary nonprofits that work in their own ways to re-acclimate, re-enable and re-engage people with disabilities. While these groups provide distinct programs, their client bases often overlap.

The Alliance provides an easy referral channel that connects clients to Foundation outings and other services. Throughout the year, the Foundation facilitates communication among Alliance members to share knowledge, ideas and resources that help all of the organizations be more effective and efficient. Alliance members also combine their strengths to focus better on their clients in need.
