Join us in 2023 as we celebrate 50 years of opening doors for those in our community! 

The Bridge of Central Mass opened its first program in 1973. Now 50 years later, we will celebrate the history of The Bridge of Central Mass and Alternatives' Unlimited, as well as our strength and bright future ahead as Open Sky.

Thank you to all who kicked off the celebration with us on Giving Tuesday! Stay tuned for all that is to come in 2023. If you missed your chance to receive the special 50th anniversary items on Giving Tuesday, there will be more opportunities in the New Year. 

Our history: 

Open Sky Community Services, headquartered in Worcester, Massachusetts, was built through the affiliation of two of Central Massachusetts’ premier human service organizations: Alternatives Unlimited, Inc. and The Bridge of Central Massachusetts. While our name and agency is new, our collective histories are long and strong. Together we have decades of shared experience in program development, and are widely respected for our innovative services. Our Executive Leadership Team, Board, and professional staff bring an unparalleled depth and breadth of organizational expertise, community leadership and service excellence to the agency.

We are proud to honor the history of Alternatives and The Bridge, while looking to the future as Open Sky.
