Peer Supporters serve as role models, as only someone with personal experience with disabilities can do. They share life experiences and bring new ideas and information to facilitate independence. They work one-on-one, in small groups, and hold regular monthly Peer Support Groups for those interested—both on-site and online. Please check out our schedule below:
Able South Carolina offers peer support groups for individuals with all types of disabilities. Our Empower Hour is led by your peers and meets to discuss independence, share resources, make new friends, and give support to each other.
Empower Hour is a great chance to connect with others! Individuals with disabilities can participate in one of our online peer support groups:
