From Tragedy Comes Hope

From Tragedy Comes Hope

I must say that we have a fabulous community. As many of you are aware, our Executive Director at Abilities Services, Inc. passed away unexpectedly a couple weeks ago. I can not even begin to tell you how many phone calls, emails and text messages we received from people reaching out and offering sincere condolences. This simple gesture meant so much and over time allowed us to see that we were going to be just fine.

The Lizton Rest Park

The Lizton Rest Park

Not long ago, my wife and I traveled east on I-74 to visit family. As we neared the Lizton Rest Park, we decided to stop in. I then realized that Abilities Services had been contracted by INDOT to clean and maintain the rest park since approximately 1991. Yes, 25 years ago. It seems like yesterday.

Maybe teachers or others urged you to get your child evaluated. Maybe you went through several other diagnoses first. But even though you knew something was coming, you still feel that impact when you get the diagnosis.

I had the privilege to talk with Mary Hutchison recently, an ASI Direct Support Professional who works in our Crawfordsville Day Services Program. Mary has worked at ASI for two years and works daily in our cooking lab. I guess you could call Mary ASI’s version of Rachel Ray, without the TV show but yet, a very captive audience.

Never Stop Believing You Can!

Never Stop Believing You Can!

“If you think you can or if you think you can’t, you’re right.” Henry Ford made that famous quote. His heirs are now leading one of the largest auto manufacturers in the world. So much of what we chose to do and accomplish in life is determined by our own attitude. Attitude is everything. Getting up early, showing up for the job, and smiling is just a start. Having a vision, being persistent and being unwavering in accomplishing your vision, your goals and dreams is a great next step.
