Celebrating 20 Years of Giving Abilities a Chance!

Over the last 20 years, we have seen the power of giving abilities a chance.  What began as a dream to connect adults with developmental disabilities became a 5-day program, engaging local adults and their families with their community throughout the week.  We have seen God’s plan of creating a place to learn, grow, lead and serve.  I am so thankful for you.  The faith community, civic organizations, businesses, and individuals who have financially supported and prayed for us over the past 20 years. 

I am thrilled to be celebrating this year with you!
