Choices A Community Social Center is a 501(C)3 non-profit.

Primary funding is received from the County of Summit Alcohol Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Board.

Choices was started in October 1992 by a group of caring, concerned people.

Choices was first run by State workers, then workers from Community Support Services. Choices became consumer-run in 2001.

Choices was voted the "2005 Consumer Operated Service of the Year" by Ohio Advocates for Mental Health and the "2010 and 2015 Employer of the Year" by Community Support Services.

Because Choices is made up of individuals who have overcome the impact that mental challenges had on their lives,they can:

1)Share their wisdom, knowledge and experience in recovery;

2)Make individuals aware of choices available to them and assist them to implement their own personal plan of recovery;

3)Help individuals master the skills necessary to recover; and

4)Provide comfort and support along the journey.
