Ability Tree

Ability Tree is a faith-based non-profit organization that is devoted to making Jesus accessible to all by:

Providing disability ministry training for the local church, to help them welcome and include families impacted by disability. Through nation-wide consulting, we help churches become more accessible through assessing their place, people and programs. When you make the church inclusive, you make Jesus accessible.

Providing R.E.S.T. (Recreation, Education, Support, & Training) to individuals and families impacted by disability through local branches in NJ, AR, & FL.
