ABLE NH believes in the good work and values-based missions of our 10 independent, non-profit, locally run Area Agencies, NH's service delivery system. As part of its effort to support a service delivery system that is inclusive and continuously improving, ABLE NH is surveyed families on a variety of subjects. As you may be aware, the service delivery system for individuals with developmental disabilities and acquired brain disorders has faced numerous challenges in recent years, including funding challenges, managed care legislation, and more recently, federal regulatory mandates regarding case management and direct service provision that have the potential to impact the current Area Agency System.

As an independent voice for the disability community, ABLE NH collected data to ensure that public officials receive your input when deciding upon any potential legislation or other regulatory changes that may impact your life. When it comes to services that support families and individuals with disabilities, your opinion counts, and it deserves attention.

No state or federal funds

ABLE receives not state or federal funding.  This allows ABLE to chose our own issues and be truly membership driven without ties to governmental rule. It also means we work hard to raise every dime.
