Ability1st Marks 40 Years of Service with New Website

Welcome to our new website! Ability1st has been a part of the Tallahassee community, serving individuals with disabilities since 1978. Throughout the past 40 years, our programs have evolved, our staff has grown, and even our name has changed; but our primary mission remains the same….to empower people with disabilities to live independently and enhance their quality of life. 

Our new website is part of our effort to better communicate the work we do and how you can get involved.  So whether you are already a friend of Ability1st, or perhaps new to our organization, we invite to you take a look around the new site and discover all Ability1st has to offer.  We look forward to many more years of growth and service.
