ABLE (Access to Better Living Experiences)
Fenelon Falls, Kawartha Lakes, ON, Canada
ABLE is parents, family members, and allies in the Fenelon Falls area working together to remove the barriers to a good life for our loved ones, and to build a more inclusive community for all. We connect in order to learn about one another’s hopes and challenges, educate ourselves, hear about “best practices” and successful initiatives in other communities, develop practical strategies to meet local needs, and support one another on this challenging but inspirational journey. ABLE is set in small-town rural Ontario so we would love to collaborate with other family networks in similar settings. We are developing a “Community Connector” model for building personal support networks, and are striving to build a truly inclusive community where everyone belongs and thrives.
