It is with great pleasure that I can announce, on behalf of the Abilis Board, the selection of Amy Montimurro as our new President and CEO. Amy has worked for Abilis for over 22 years, and most recently served as the Director of Life Services and as our interim CEO.

Amy is a forward-thinking leader with a deep passion to serve the special needs community. Managing Life Services since 2006, she has led the organization through a tremendous period of growth, providing oversight and leading direct services programs for young adults through seniors with intellectual disabilities.

Under Amy’s leadership, Abilis has expanded the scope and geographic range of its services throughout Fairfield County, including:

  • The launch and expansion of our Young Adults/Transitions Life Skills program in Greenwich to Stamford, Westport and Wilton.
  • An increase in the number of Abilis businesses which serve as job training sites, most notably Abilis Gardens and Gifts.
  • Currently, over 60 local businesses competitively provide employment for the individuals we serve.
  • Implemented a robust social and recreational activities program for teens and adults that reaches over 200 individuals providing opportunities for friendships.
  • Increased number of residential options throughout Greenwich, Stamford and Norwalk.

Amy is a strong, team-focused leader that fully embraces the values of our organization. She has an L.M.S.W degree from Fordham University and is an adjunct professor at Fordham’s Graduate School of Social Services.  

I would like to thank the Abilis Board for their support over the past couple of months during our President/CEO transition.

We are delighted to have such a qualified and caring professional leading our organization for our next chapter. Please join us in welcoming Amy to her new role as CEO and President of Abilis.

Best Regards,

Alonso Martinez
Abilis Board Chairperson
