Peer Support

Peer Supporters serve as inspiration and role models, as only someone with personal experience with disabilities can do. They share life experience and bring new ideas and information to facilitate independence. They work one-on-one, in small groups and do regular monthly Peer Support Groups for those interested—both on site and online.

Advocacy

We’re at the forefront of activism and leadership on any and all issues affecting people with disabilities – issues like accessibility, public accommodations and transportation. These are critical in achieving full inclusion in community life. We work with local, state and national leaders to bring about change and create opportunities.

Youth Transition Services

Able SC provides services to advocate on behalf of students with disabilities to get them the education they need in the least restrictive environment. We give high school students with disabilities the specific skills they need to plan for their future, like identifying goals and the steps required to reach them.

Transition to the Community

We all want to be a part of the community! Able SC can assist people with disabilities with living where they choose and maintaining their independence in the community. We can help navigate a move from any environment, including institutions.
