Dear friends,

The new year brings with it a renewed commitment and hope for a healthier and safer future for AbilityFirst participants and their families. We are continuing to provide daily remote programming and alternate location services to keep participants and families safe but also engaged and connected. We have a variety of online programming that inspire socialization. Not only are these programs engaging and fun, but they help AbilityFirst participants overcome some of the isolation and feelings of anxiety that can result from the disruption of their daily routines.

Some of these activities include:

  • Learning new technology and computer skills
  • Exercise and other physical activities
  • Personal care and self-advocacy


As we embark on this new year, AbilityFirst celebrates 95 years of uninterrupted service for children and adults with disabilities! The celebration has already begun with a digital campaign called, 95 Reasons to Love AbilityFirst. We will feature videos, photos and testimonials on social media from participants, families and friends sharing all the reasons why they love AbilityFirst. I invite you to submit your reason by posting on your own social media using the hashtag #AF95Years or, you can email your submission to

For more information, visit 95 Reasons to Love AbilityFirst – AbilityFirst

I wish you and your family health and happiness in 2021.
