Overview of Our Programs

At Empowering Abilities, we strive to help people become productive members of the community. By being consumers, employees, taxpayers, and neighbors, our participants achieve a sense of belonging.

From their work, they experience pride and satisfaction for doing a job well and being rewarded with a paycheck. By living in the community, they learn what it’s like to pay bills and how to be a responsible citizen and a good neighbor. Individuals with disabilities have the same fundamental rights and needs as everyone else. They want to be loved, feel worthy and to be part of their community. We help people achieve those goals.
