Enable, Inc. Overview
Profile ( less )
New Jersey 08540
Target demographics: Enable assists persons who have permanent or chronic disabilities. The disability may be physical or cognitive and it causes difficulties with communication, self-care, mobility or the ability to live independently.
There are no age restrictions for services. We support individuals of all ages. However, some services have restrictions because of the type of funding received to support the service.
Since we receive funds from the New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD), some services are limited to persons eligible for DDD services. For DDD, the physical or mental impairment must be apparent before age 22 and be lifelong. This includes conditions such as mental retardation, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, spina bifida, autism and other neurological impairments.
Special funding through the United Way of Greater Mercer County particularly allows Enable to assist persons who are elderly and those whose disability may be the result of an injury or of a medical condition such as multiple sclerosis, stroke or other debilitating illness.
Enable does not provider service to persons whose primary disability is mental illness or substance abuse.
Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Spend time with a person with a disability, paint a room, help in the office, help with landscaping, get involved with an event. Contact us for more information.
