Your gift to Alternatives Impact helps our community!

Aaron Lambert, Nutritional Wellness Center

In 2006 we had a vision of creating a wellness center that would be highly successful in helping people to achieve optimal health. We also wanted to connect as many people as possible with the wonderful locally grown food. The business loan and the Business CENTS program both allowed us to achieve our dream. A loan officer even came to visit our business some time later to see how we were doing.
