Abilis, the non-profit organization that provides services and supports for individuals with special needs and their families, is opening a new Life Skills program in Wilton at the Trackside Teen Center. The Life Skills Program is designed to help high school graduates with special needs transition into adulthood. The Wilton program represents an expansion of Abilis’ Life Skills program to a fourth location in Fairfield County, so that students can transition within their home communities. 

The Circle of Caring campaign was launched in 2013 to generate funds for the Abilis Community Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 organization dedicated to the charitable and educational purposes of helping people with developmental disabilities who work and live in lower Fairfield County. The Abilis Community Foundation provides funding to Abilis, Inc. and a limited number of select non-profit partners through a grant process.

GREENWICH — Staff and supporters of a Greenwich-based social service agency that helps people with developmental disabilities spent the first of six state-mandated furlough days rallying against state budget cuts. Some 200 people connected with Abilis swarmed Town Hall Wednesday morning to criticize a budget impasse that has temporarily cut 10 percent of the nonprofit’s operating expenses for its day and residential programs until a state spending plan is reached. The loss of what agency officials said was between $400,000 and $500,000 has forced Abilis — and many other of the state’s social service agencies — to close down for six days to stay within their spending limits.
