Who We Are

Able2's mission is to enhance the quality of life of those we serve.
- Support individuals in accord with the Direct Support Professionals’ Code of Ethics
- Foster an environment of excellence, teamwork, and fiscal responsibility
- Continuously seek to engage in advocacy and education that elevates practical understanding of persons with disabilities as contributors to their community
In 1949, a group of parents with children having Cerebral Palsy came together in pursuit of educational resources and a future within the local community for their children. That group of advocates became Cerebral Palsy and Handicapped Children’s Association of Chemung County. Through encouragement, action and time, development of opportunities within the community emerged. While the services offered have changed and our organization is now named Able2, our core values remain the same— to serve and protect people with developmental disabilities by creating opportunities for them to live their best life and be contributors to the community.
Today, we serve over 1800 individuals through residential opportunities, day and community habilitation services, respite, clinical services, environmental modifications, and self-determined supports.
