Dear Friends of AbilityFirst,
For more than 94 years AbilityFirst has evolved and adapted to societal changes, and it’s no different today.

AbilityFirst’s dedicated staff is creating new ways to stay connected to our participants every day during this challenging time. Most of our programs quickly transitioned to remote support via Zoom and other technologies. Not only are these virtual programs FUN for our participants, they help them overcome some of the isolation and feelings of anxiety that can result from the disruption of their daily routines.

Some of these activities include:

  • Chair Exercises, Zumba, Yoga, Stretching
  • Finish the Lyric game
  • Self-Care, mindfulness
  • Beginning Sign Language

This alternative programming empowers individuals to continue to:

  • Identify and explore their interests and goals
  • Effectively communicate their needs and wants
  • Interact in a variety of new activities and environments
  • Live healthy active lifestyles, within the limitations imposed by the Safer At Home directive
We will continue to support our participants and families from a distance until we are able to resume in-person activities, but we cannot do this crucial work without the support from donors like you. 


Now more than ever our participants need AbilityFirst.  Please help us continue to support people with disabilities.
Please consider a donation today.


Stay well and thank you for your support.
