Kids Abilities is currently conducting a work and social skills group.  It is available for young adults ages 16+ to participate. They will be making homeware objects and toys to be distributed to the Alex & Ani Foundation to be sold in the Hope Gallery with all proceeds funding supplies for the group.

Their MISSION is to empower and enhance the lives of young adults with autism & other developmental disabilities by providing opportunities for job skill development, vocational activities & meaningful community involvement.
The foundation was formed in 2014 in honor of Ali Callahan and Alexander Parker. Ali and Alex have been best friends since childhood and have a love and concern for others that is to be emulated. Like so many, they are hardworking and have a desire to make the world a better place.
