Project Able

Providing support for Chinese and Vietnamese families in the Boston community.

Project Able was created to connect Chinese and Vietnamese families in the Boston area to resources and support for loved ones with disabilities. Our culturally diverse and experienced staff partners with each family to provide access to programs, services, and connections based on their unique needs and vision.

Support can range from housing and benefits advocacy, to communications and translation, and recreational and social events. Ultimately, we bridge language and cultural barriers so that each family and their loved one can be part of a supportive and nurturing community.
