Aberg Center for Literacy’s mission is to build richer lives, stronger families, and better communities through programs in English fluency, Spanish and English GED preparation, early childhood education and family literacy. This is accomplished by having the adults take classes Monday-Thursday from 9-12 pm, during the school year. If the student has a preschool child, then childcare is provided during that time. The teachers follow a curriculum to help ensure that the children will be prepared for their time to attend school. The parents commit to come to school to read to their child for 30 minutes each day and attend a weekly class to learn how they can be the best educator for their child.

Ability Connection

The mission of Ability Connection is to enrich the lives of children and adults with intellectual and physical disabilities through comprehensive, life changing care, training and supports.
At Ability Connection we utilize volunteers in many ways. We like to call our volunteers Connection Ambassadors. At our training centers we utilized our Connection Ambassadors with administrative support by filing, making copies, organizing, and with mailings. There are also opportunities to help with facilities assistance, by helping with janitorial work, handyman services, and grounds cleanup. We encourage Connection Ambassadors to interact with members by teaching a special class on art, music, movement, science, tech, gardening, spelling, Spanish, reading, or any other activity that would enrich the lives of our members. Also Connection Ambassadors can come to the training centers to socialize, play games, or help during meal time.
We also have 7 group homes that Connection Ambassadors can go to interact with members by having a cookout, planning a Game Night, reading to members, start or maintain a veggie garden. There are also opportunities to help with maintenance in the group homes.
Part of our mission is to get our members out into the community on field trips. So there are many opportunities for Connection Ambassadors to help facilitate on these trips to sporting events, museums, the aquatic center, the animal shelter.
We have special events throughout the year that we utilize Connection Ambassadors. Our two main events are the Black and White Ball, and Vine and Dine Annual Dinner.
One of our Connection Ambassador programs is called Connection Companions. Our Connection Companions are paired up with one of our members to establish an enriching one on one relationship. The goal is to help members that can be socially and physically isolated to develop relationship with people in the community. The Connection Companion would visit the member in their home, set up fun activities in the community, and stay in regular contact with the member.
