Description

In 1984, the first AbilityFirst accessible apartment complex opened its doors, in Glendale, California. Today, our housing program has grown to include 10 apartment complexes, a “family-style” adult residential facility, and a residential home for seniors. We are happy to announce that our newest apartment complex, and our first in Orange County, is now open.
Recognizing the critical need for accessible, affordable housing, AbilityFirst has become a leader in building and operating residential facilities for individuals with physical and developmental disabilities. This commitment reflects our mission to help children and adults with disabilities realize their full potential throughout their lives.


Company description
In 1999, the organization adopted the name AbilityFirst to better reflect our mission, our vision for the future, and our commitment to celebrating the unique abilities of every individual. Learning to swim can be an empowering and exciting experience. Swim lessons are just one of many activities offered through AbiltiyFirst’s aquatic program. Established as the Crippled Children’s Society in 1926 and operating in the greater Los Angeles area, AbilityFirst supports individuals with special needs through after school enrichment programs, job training, community employment, accessible camping, and affordable and accessible housing. AbilityFirst is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and the American Camping Association (ACA). All facilities are licensed by the California Department of Social Services and the Department of Developmental Services. Through 24 locations across Southern California, AbilityFirst provides programs and services to help children and adults with physical and developmental disabilities reach their full potential throughout their lives. We offer a broad range of employment, recreational and socialization programs and operate 12 accessible residential housing complexes. When our organization was founded, the name reflected the thinking and norms of the time. The ensuing decades, however, brought dramatic change. We expanded to provide programs for adults, as well as children. We also broadened our mission in order to meet the needs of those with developmental disabilities, as well as those with physical disabilities. Development disabilities include autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and epilepsy.
