Able to Serve was founded in 2003 as a 501(c)3 organization to provide people with disabilities opportunities to actively participate in the community. We began with a donated, used wheelchair accessible van that could transport one person to church, social events, family gatherings, or doctor’s appointments. In 2009, we expanded our services to include continuing education, life skills training, creative arts, social events, and hands-on community service projects.
Currently, Able to Serve serves both Wake and Johnston County residents, has two vans with a capacity to transport 27 participants (including wheelchair lift)..
We are a member of NC Center for Nonprofits, the Garner Chamber of Commerce, and the Greater Cleveland Chamber of Commerce. We received the 2013 Small Business of the Year Award from the Greater Cleveland Chamber.
In 2016 Able to Serve received the Garner Chamber of Commerce’s Summit Award (Nonprofit Achievement Award). This annual award recognizes nonprofit organizations that have demonstrated excellence by effectively addressing a problem within the community and efficiently using available resources to achieve maximum positive impact.
