The ABLE Network is a fee for service, registered charity located in Aurora, Ontario. We are a community based program that provides relevant inclusive work and recreation opportunities for young adults with Intellectual Disabilities (ID) in natural job and community settings. Our participants are supported in our five core programs of work experience, transit training, recreation, literacy and volunteer activities. The ABLE Network is based on strong principles and research that states that inclusion of persons with an ID in natural settings provides them with an equal opportunity to make a contribution to the health and well-being of their community.
The ABLE Network had a very successful experience at the 2012 STWM. Not only did we raise much needed funds and awareness of our program, we also raised the spirits and fitness levels of all who participated on our team. It was a great day and we really look forward to participating again on October 20, 2013. Please support this dynamic and innovative program!
Our team of young adults are enthusiastically working out at the gym to make sure that they are Ready and ABLE to tackle the 5 KM walk/run. You can assist us by:
