Access to Better Living & Employment

Vision Statement :

We inspire adults with intellectual disabilities to reach their full potential through access to better living and employment.

Mission Statement:

Our participants confidently contribute to the workplace and community, growing their independence and abilities through relevant experience in natural settings.  Together, with our enthusiastic network of committed community partners, we create an environment of encouragement, healthy living, and life-long success.

Organizational Description:

The ABLE Network is a fee for service, registered charity located in York Region, Ontario. We are a community based program that provides relevant inclusive work and recreation opportunities for young adults with Intellectual Disabilities (ID) in natural job and community settings. Our participants are supported in our five core programs of work experience, transit training, recreation, literacy and volunteer activities. The ABLE Network is based on strong principles and research that states that inclusion of persons with an ID in natural settings provides them with an equal opportunity to make a contribution to the health and well-being of their community.
