Consumer Testimonial

I’ve been having my difficulties communicating with my Primary Care Physician for a while. I’ve been with her a long time and simply took her advice without question.. after all, she is the doctor...and who am I to question her. However, the office time spent with me is often just a few quick minutes and my questions go unanswered because of these constraints. Recently, I’ve had to leave messages and follow-up questions about medical issues that I feel are being ignored. Having taken the Health Advocacy class with Able SC, along with with the discussion in the Hour of Empowerment virtual group has given me the courage to ask...and ask again until I get an answer or a referral. I am getting results and considering I may have to change my doctor. I am at last doing something for myself and it feels good!

Teacher Testimonial

I’m really enjoying being on the Able SC email list! Particularly since one of my former students is enjoying being so involved in Able-SC activities.

I’ve seen her self-confidence grow by leaps and bounds as she has continued her growth to young adulthood working with your agency. I’m thrilled that she has found a place to “belong.” So many of my students leave me at 21 and quickly become stagnant because of the lack of meaningful activities in their life after school. I’m encouraging ALL of my students to get involved with Able SC, even before they exit school.

Consumer Testimonial

This letter is to give my extraordinary compliments to the hard work put forth by LaQuanda Porchea.  Not only does she assist me in setting goals, she sees to it that I stick to them, something I desperately need during this time, since I tend to get side-tracked.

She attends my conferences when I need a peer to help me advocate and gently points out what I may wish to do in the future. When I need a service which Able SC can provide, she’s right on it.  Another remarkable plus concerning LaQuanda is she’s personable.  She gives her experiences such that clients don’t feel as if s/he is/are alone. 

Peer Support

Our Peer Supporters offer valuable life experience and companionship to encourage new ideas and facilitate independence. Able SC holds regular Peer Support Groups both in-person in small groups or virtually, for those interested in engaging with others.
