I know Cape Abilities as a parent of a client and as a volunteer. There are so many things this organization does well! Most impressive to me is the talent and commitment of their staff. The adults they serve always come first. The entire organization is run with the positive attitude that the disabled adults are a terrific group and with a dedication to making their lives as happy and productive as possible. Management in the day programs are incredibly hands-on with the clients and daily activities. All in all, a group that takes what it has and makes the most out of it.

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.
