What we do
The Ability Center seeks partnerships with community organizations and supports individuals with disabilities and their families to achieve their vision of independent living. We provide a variety of vital services to help people with disabilities understand their rights and how to address them. We also help people with disabilities gain new skills to live, work and play in their community.
At the Ability Center, we strive to help the members of our community understand Disability, while at the same time making sure those with disabilities feel like they belong.
The mission of the Center is to assist people with disabilities to live, work and socialize within a fully accessible community. The Ability Center provides a variety of services, including Information and Referral, Advocacy, Independent Living Skills Training, Peer Support and Community Living to achieve this mission.
