Ability Connection Texas has over 58 years of experience in providing essential programs and services that empower adults with disabilities to live the best life possible. Included in our Adult Services are the following programs: IMPACT, Assistive Technology and Residential Services. These programs enable adults to lessen or overcome the effects of their disabilities, to enjoy greater freedom and the benefits of a supportive community of friends and professionals.
The IMPACT program at Ability Connection Texas is a goal-driven day program for adults with disabilities. This program provides individuals ages 18 and older the opportunity to attain personal goals through life skills education, personal growth training, recreation and leisure activities, community outings, and socialization. The services provided by our IMPACT program are imperative to individuals with disabilities to increase or maintain basic skills, and to be able to move towards independence at a pace which enhances their success, and overall quality of life. Our IMPACT program is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm.
The name of our program says it al…IMPACT: Individuals Making Personal Achievements Come True.
Ability Connection Texas (ACT) provides caring, family-style living environments for adults with disabilities through its residential services program. ACT currently operates seven homes throughout the North Texas area. These homes, sometimes referred to as group homes, allow individuals with disabilities to live with as much autonomy and independence as possible.
ACT’s residential homes are staffed 24 hours a day. When residents are home, at least two (2) care professionals are there to assist residents with personal care activities such as, feeding, bathing, and personal hygiene, as needed. During sleeping hours, at least one (1) care professional is awake and on duty. ACT’s care professionals also clean and maintain homes, cook meals, and provide personal assistance based on each resident’s needs and abilities.
Our residential homes are accessible for individuals with mobility impairments. Homes are also equipped with roll-in showers and special lifts to help transport residents into and out of wheelchairs and beds.
