What People Are Saying
"I love Abilities Centre! THRIVE helps me make new friends and learn new things. I know so many people at the centre and can't wait to come every day."
— Thrive Participant
"Last year I sent my son to camp at Abilities Centre for the first time. Because of his disability, he has never had a chance to go to camp before. The staff at Abilities Centre are amazing. I have never seen my son have so much fun in his life. I can't thank you enough!"
— Lori, Parent
"I've been a member at Abilities Centre for a long time. I started coming for their post-rehab programs, which were a big help to me as I recovered from a minor stroke. Now, I come here all the time to stay fit, see my friends, and enjoy the community. There's no place like it anywhere."
— John, Member
