HELPING TO REVITALIZE THE COMMUNITY WHILE REACHING OUT TO FAMILIES IMPACTED BY DISABILITY
The model Ability Tree Center was first opened in November of 2011 after four months of renovation, which included replacing the entire floor in the recreation area (over 2,000 square feet). During the renovation, we realized that what we were doing was not only going to impact families with children with disabilities but it was also going to impact the downtown area of Siloam Springs. In essence, we were helping to revitalize a Main Street U.S.A. town while reaching out to families impacted by disability.
This is a concept that we want to duplicate across the country. But first, we have to complete the model Ability Center, which includes little things like wall padding. This project will directly impact approximately 36 children with special needs who attend the Ability Center on a weekly basis for a variety of programming.
Please consider partnering with us in this project that impacts not just families of children with special needs but in reality a whole downtown area. Thanks for helping us grow able families and accessible organizations!
The finished product!
On a mission,
Joe Butler & the Ability Tree Team
