A Broader Living Experience (ABLE)
25 De Anza Way
Our agency, A Broader Living Experience (ABLE), is a non-profit 501(c)3, ICF-DD(H) licensed residential facility in San Rafael, CA. Focusing on creating a home, we provide 24-hour care for up to 9 adult men and women with developmental disabilities.
ABLE's mission is to meet the diverse needs of our residents and to provide an environment that empowers them to engage their lives actively and become a part of their community. Our facility provides each resident with active treatment programs -- assertive and organized efforts to enable her/him to reach the fullest developmental capacity. This relational approach involves an integrated, individually tailored program of services to help each resident function with as much independence and self-determination as possible. We are committed to supporting our clients’ health and wellness and enhancing their quality of life.
ABLE recognizes that every person with a developmental disability is capable of personal growth, development, and learning. We view community integration as an interactive process, which includes community awareness and education. We enthusiastically encourage innovation in service that reduces restrictiveness of the residential setting and enhances the developmental opportunities for both residents and staff.
Our management style is based on team decision making and valuing the needs of each resident, our staff, and management personnel.
