The Able Trust
The Able Trust was established in 1990 by the state legislature as the Florida Endowment for Vocational Rehabilitation, as a direct supporter of vocational rehabilitation. The organization has helped to put thousands of individuals with disabilities to work and supports employment-related efforts in all counties of Florida.
In 2017 The Able Trust supported the launch of the Best Buddies Jobs Program in Orlando. From the inaugural year to date, the Orlando team has placed 35 individuals in integrated employment throughout Central Florida, a remarkable accomplishment.
In 2019 Best Buddies submitted a multi-year strategic grant to fund our Jobs program throughout the state (Broward, Miami, and Orlando) in addition to expanding the program into Tampa in 2020. Through a competitive application and interview process, The Able Trust selected Best Buddies Florida as a recipient of this strategic grant. Best Buddies Florida is proud to partner with The Able Trust as we enrich the lives of those with an intellectual or developmental disability through gainful employment opportunities.
