- About Abilis
- Our Businesses
Abilis (ABLE-ISS), a nonprofit (501c3) agency, previously was known as Greenwich ARC. It began in Greenwich in 1951, when parents and the local Junior League and Community Chest joined forces to help children with developmental disabilities.
Today, Abilis meets the myriad needs of people with developmental disabilities – not only in childhood, but throughout their lives.
Abilis works in schools, civic organizations and with families in Greenwich, Stamford, Darien and throughout Fairfield County and into Westchester County in New York state.
Abilis provides employment services for adults and residential support to adults in more than a dozen homes owned by Abilis in Greenwich and Stamford, as well as to people living more independently in apartments and condominiums.
Many families work with us for weeks or months. For others, the journey lasts years or even a lifetime. In every case, Abilis’ respect for people – their abilities, needs and dreams – drives everything we do.
Abilis has been supporting teens with disabilities for the past 63 years and has been teaching Healthy Relationships/Sexuality for the past six years in Greenwich and Stamford. In partnership with Healing Hearts, Abilis is offering its eight-week workshop on Thursday afternoons, starting October 2.
