AdaptAbilities is a non-profit organization where we empower families and people with diverse abilities to grow, succeed, and belong.
We provide an essential service that promotes self-care and well-being. We support families to find peace of mind amid the stress of everyday challenges.
Our Human Rights approach not only supports the individual, but also the families who have altered their work/life balance to become caregivers.
While individuals with diverse abilities certainly require care and support, so do their families.
Caregiving for an individual with diverse abilities requires strength, compassion, and patience. We recognize that families often put their own well-being aside while caring for their children, which can be physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausting.
The specialized respite services at AdaptAbilities gives parents the opportunity to pause, take a break, and focus on their own well-being while fostering relationships with their loved ones.
AdaptAbilities provides purposeful support while building capacity for both the family and individual.
EOS is a simple system with great tools that have helped me and the leadership team operationalize our Vision and BHAG. As a charity, and for impact organization, it is important to operate like a business and as a result our impact increases.
All of the tools are extremely helpful and guide our team to ensure we have the right people in the right seats, we are dealing with issues as they arise, and having an Accountability Chart that focuses on what each role is accountable for.
We just love it!
