Abilities Unlimited of Hot Springs, Arkansas, INC
Abilities Unlimited is a center based program that serves persons with disabilities. Our nonprofit organization established in 1961 to train and seek employment opportunities for those we serve. We offer prevocational services including Work Activity Program, Adult Development Program, School to Work Program, and a job training program through Arkansas Rehabiltation Services. Referral sources include Arkansas Rehabilitation Services, Developmental Disabilities Services and local schools. We also offer support and follow-up services to those trainees that are placed on jobs. A large percentage of our funding is generated through our contacts with industry. We make every effort to bring jobs and equipment into our organization that can teach and duplicate skills found in local industries and businesses. This job match better prepares our trainees for competitive employment. Some of the jobs presently performed are assembly, packaging, quality assurance, material handler, equipment operator, retail sales, rag sales, and janitorial maintenance and life skills classes.
PHILOSOPHY ABOUT COMMUNITY SERVICE:
Abilities Unlimited was created by families of adults with disabilities, so that they are provided with training in the areas of work ethics, behaviors, relationships and personal achievement, through real work opportunities. The vision of becoming as independent as possible is the goal for each person that passes through our doors.
