    Sometimes feel like you can't keep up with the changing times and the changing terminologies?

    You're not alone in the desire to ensure that your message isn't lost because of an accidental mis-phrasing. View our helpful Guidelines to Terminology.

Additionally, the program reaches out to volunteers with disabilities to help build the homes, demonstrating to the community their skills, talents and potential as volunteers and employees. The ABILITY House program was recognized by President George W. Bush with the President's Community Volunteer Award, the nation's highest award for volunteer service.
