Day Services

Focusing on Abilities, not Disabilities

Since 4/14/2014, the passion of Abilities Day Services has been to provide the highest quality services centered on each individual's needs and preferences, promoting dignity, respect, achievement, and a positive outlook.

At Abilities, our motto is "Focusing on Abilities not Disabilities."  We work (and have fun) with individuals that have intellectual/developmental and/or physical disabilities by providing assistance in multiple areas in a clean, friendly, and safe environment. We provide personal care assistance and work in a positive team environment in which we model positive and productive behaviors. 

We have many activities available to assist each individual in their daily lives. Community outings are coordinated frequently such as bowling, geocaching, volunteer opportunities, and many other seasonal events. We are always open and seeking new experiences our participant may be interested in whenever possible.

In August 2018, Abilities and the EFN office moved to it's new location at 4525 F Street. It is our hope that the new location will provide an even better enviroment and provide our participants with new opportunities to enjoy hobbies such as gardening and other outdoor activities.
