I love it that CapeAbilities is able to raise awareness of the positive contributions that adults with disabilities make to our community. In addition to providing meaningful employment to their clients, their farms produce excellent fresh vegetable for our homes and restaurants. Working as an occasional volunteer, I have enjoyed the interaction between staff and clients. Each spring, CapeAbilites fundraising walk/run is a family event for us. They continue to find new ways to remove any barriers that might keep their clients from being all they can be.

Cape Abilities is a wonderful organization that serves Cape Cod by employing adults with disabilities. I have enjoyed the products that are sold at their farm in Dennis many times and have always been impressed with the clients and their mentors. What great organization and I will continue to support their efforts any way I can.

We are extremely fortunate to have an organization like Cape Abilities employing adults with disabilities in our area. Their work in the community has assisted many businesses and provided a tremendous opportunity for positive work experiences for this often neglected segment of our population. Their staff has represented the organization with personality and their administrative staff is second to none. They should be commended and rewarded for these efforts.

What a wonderful organization. We love visiting their farm and the thrift store they operate. Everyone we have met has been friendly and welcoming. The pride exhibited at the farm is fantastic and the quality of the produce is superb.

Cape Abilities is an outstanding organization and Cape Cod is so fortunate to have them! Not only do they provide much needed services for adults with disabilities, but they've been able to put such people in front of the public in tremendously positive way, helping them provide services to the general public that are truly sought after. Their farms, where the clients are involved in every step from planting seeds to selling produce at the farm stand, have become go to spots for Cape residents for all seasons. Cape Abilities is a role model in their industry and in our community!

I volunteer at Cape Abilities on Cape Cod and personally know that it is an outstanding organization that serves individuals with disabilities. It's mission is to provide residentual, therapeutic, social, and employment supports to its consumers. I work with a broad range of people in the day-hab program and have seen the amazing progress that mamy of them have made. They are becoming empowered to live active and meaningful lives. Activities that I have observed in the Life Skills Day Habilitation program include walking, swimming, music, bowling, horse back riding and community volunteering. Many people work at the Cape Abilities farm in Dennis where a wide variety of vegetables are sold. Award winning tomatoes are grown hydroponically in the greenhouses. Cape Abilities also has partnered with many businesses including The Centerville Pie Company which achieved fame after Oprah Winfrey sampled the pies when she was on Cape Cod and featured the Pie Company on her show. Due to the increas in business,The Pie Company now has a "pie kitchen" at Cape Abilities and people with disabilities are employed to help make the pies. I am also on the board of this wonderful organization and it is a joy to be a supporter of Cape Abilities and watch each individual strive to be the person they are most capable of being.
