We specialize in services that support individuals with disabilities to develop the skills to reach their independent living goals.
Many of our staff members are individuals with disabilities that have knowledge of the supports and training needed to successfully transition to adult community life.
We continue a 40-year tradition of offering and promoting programs to empower people with all disabilities to take personal responsibility so that they may achieve or continue independent living lifestyles within the community.
“Under Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VI and VII) and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, Ability360 prohibits discrimination in admissions, programs, services, activities or employment based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, and disability. Ability360 must make a reasonable accommodation to allow a person with a disability to take part in a program, service, or activity. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities. For example, this means that if necessary, Ability360 must provide sign language interpreters for people who are deaf, a wheelchair accessible location, or enlarged print materials. It also means that Ability360 will take any other reasonable action that allows you to take part in and understand a program or activity, including making reasonable changes to an activity. If you believe that you will not be able to understand or take part in a program or activity because of your disability, please let us know of your disability needs in advance if at all possible.
