WHO WE ARE
Abilis is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides services and supports for over 700 individuals with special needs and their families from birth through the life span. Abilis has been a leader in serving the special needs community in lower Fairfield and Westchester Counties for almost 65 years and has a long-standing reputation for individualized, high quality care.
WHAT WE DO
Abilis provides early intervention and customized therapies, as well as family education and advocacy to help individuals achieve important developmental milestones through our Therapeutic and Family Services programs. As individuals approach and enter adulthood, we provide a wide range of Life Services programs, including recreational activities, transition and life skills support, job training, competitive and supported employment, and a choice of residential options.
WHERE WE OPERATE
Abilis Life Services programs are based at our Greenwich headquarters, while our Therapeutic and Family Services programs are centered in our Stamford office. We manage 23 residential facilities in Greenwich and Stamford and work with numerous schools, civic organizations, and other community partners to deliver programs to individuals and families when and where they need them most.
Abilis provides people with developmental disabilities and their families in lower Fairfield County with supports and advocacy for building able lives and strong communities.
Abilis will set the standard of excellence for person-centered services through innovation, teamwork and respect for the people we serve. Together, we will shape communities in which people of all abilities participate and contribute as equal citizens.
Abilis believes that all people deserve to live, learn, work and enjoy life based upon their personal preferences. Each person’s own strengths and dreams for the future deserve acknowledgment and respect. All people deserve access to resources, opportunities and skills that enhance their ability to self-advocate effectively.
People with disabilities have the same rights as all people. They are entitled to good health care and safety, meaningful choices, achievement, friendship, fulfilling work and a comfortable place to live.
Together we can make a difference in the lives of hundreds of individuals and families who depend upon Abilis to achieve their potential and lead meaningful lives.
