Enriching the lives of people with disabilities,
One Person at a Time

Join us and help make a difference for people with disabilities!

Founded in 1953, Ability Connection is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that serves over 700 Texans with all types of intellectual or other developmental disabilities.

Our members are individuals with skills, passions, interests, humor, creativity, dignity and determination, and our experienced and dedicated employees and volunteers work hard to empower them to live their best life possible by removing barriers that inhibit independence and autonomy.

Today, one in five people have a disability – which is why our organization and services are so critical.

So thank you Ability Connection for all that you are and all that you do.”


We are so grateful for the support we receive from these generous businesses and organizations.
