Expand their Experiences

Excel in Their Lives
Welcome to our Happy Place
We are all here to live our lives to the fullest, and the National Center on Institutions and Alternatives (NCIA) helps ensure that those with disabilities and past hardships have every opportunity to do so. We help guide individuals toward productive, socially acceptable lives. We know that unconditional care and personal attention can change lives in extraordinary ways, and our family of services uses these powerful forces to help those we’re privileged to serve realize their greatest potential.
My son struggles a great deal with a
multitude of challenges that previous
schools were unable to handle, yet the YIT
school has always found new and creative
ways to help him succeed. NCIA has been
our saving grace.”
“You helped countless clients of mine and taught me so much. What you taught me probably rescued one of my client’s life, and future. You also steered several clients in my direction to handle criminal appeals. I will be eager to support NCIA.”
“Everyone deserves a chance to be successful”-Herb Hoelter
“NCIA will always find a way to help those in need. Through innovative programs, NCIA offers supports to everyone.”
Since 1977, NCIA has partnered with community groups, businesses, government organizations and families to break the destructive cycle often associated with the human service and correctional systems, and work to turn lives around.
Helping People Expand, Exceed, and Excel
We serve intellectual and emotionally disabled youth and adults as well as those involved in the criminal justice system—and help them achieve their highest potentials by providing high quality and attentive individual care, concern, and treatment.
Strengthening the Entire Community
Our innovative approach to service and care helps ensure that individuals connect with the community in ways both comfortable and helpful to everyone. We welcome all individuals without judgment and assist them in creating the futures that they deserve and design.
We invite you to join us in our mission!
