WHO WE ARE
Able began in 1960 as the Tulare County Training Center for the Handicapped. It started with a volunteer staff and a client population of under 20 individuals. While beginning as a drop-in center for arts and crafts and it grew over time to incorporate work training as its primary focus. Stuffing envelopes, packaging, and product sorting were early contracts with local businesses. Over time, the agency has grown to provide services to the greater part of Tulare County. We recently moved to a 37,000-square-foot facility in the Industrial Park of Visalia where we offer life skills programs, job training and intern opportunities, and competitive integrated employment programs; this is also where our administrative offices are located. For the first time in our history, Able Inc. is all under one roof and we couldn’t be more excited!
Our mission is to integrate people with disabilities into the community by creating person-centered opportunities for empowerment, independence, and employment.
Information, education, and resources open the door for opportunity.
Being yourself is always best-everyone is valuable just as they are.
The best way to promote connections
is through integration and acceptance.
Person-centered support encourages self-sufficiency, belonging, and quality of life.
The smallest moments of progress can make the biggest impact.
