Who are we at ABLE?
ABLE is a nonprofit, community-based organization that supports adults with developmental disabilities. ABLE provides access to independent daily living assistance, group home facilities, vocational training, day-activity programs, on-the-job support, and community service activities. By acquiring self-sufficient living abilities and marketable work skills, people with developmental disabilities can expand their options of lifestyle, housing, and employment.
ABLE is a proud partner of United Way of Norman!
Our residential program offers rentals in a group home setting. Participants also benefit from recreational leisure activities. The residential program gives residents great autonomy. Participants get ready access to support for tasks like banking, shopping, and transportation.
Our vocational program solicits contracts from businesses to be completed by program participants at our community integrated employment office or job sites. This provides skills development and earned income for clients.
We maintain a community integrated employment office as the liaison between our clients and community businesses. This “workshop” provides skills development, specialized training, job search, job placement, and on-the-job assistance for each client in the program.
