ABLE Foundation announces exciting new project: new center in Caledonia!
The ABLE Foundation is excited to announce a new project: construction of a new Teaching & Recreation Center for ABLE, Inc., in Caledonia.
The first goal of the project is to purchase land suitable for the center, which would be a place where people supported by ABLE can learn life skills to be more independent, participate in recreation/leisure activities and exercise. It also would serve as a training center for ABLE employees.
The ABLE Foundation’s focus is on fundraising for this project. The goal is to have the center completed by November 2014.
