Golden anniversary: Abilities to celebrate 50 years of impacting lives

Grassroots effort grew to benefit thousands of local residents

What makes Abilities of Northwest Jersey, Inc.’s 50th anniversary special?

When a small group of local residents first got together in the early 1970s to discuss helping adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities with their vocational needs, they could not have anticipated what the future held in store.

From its humble beginnings as a small workshop in Washington, NJ, to service, program and social enterprise expansion throughout Warren, Hunterdon, Morris, Somerset, and Sussex Counties, Abilities has helped thousands of individuals gain vocational and life skills leading to fulfilling lives.

We’re grateful for our community and proud of our accomplishments, and we’re excited to celebrate all year, including at our Dream • Believe • Achieve Gala in May.”
