Hyannis MA, June 26, 2019 Cape Abilities has received a $10,000 grant from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation under its Economic Mobility for Individuals and Families initiative in support of Cape Abilities’ Employment & Vocational Skills Training program, located at Cape Abilities Farm in Dennis, MA.

“Thank you to everyone at the Bank of America Charitable Foundation (BACF) for this incredible gift of support,” said Jonathan Sproul, President/Executive Director at Cape Abilities. “As an agency, we are committed to creating a path to competitive community employment for people with disabilities. Funding from the BACF allows us to provide more supports and training than currently funded by the Commonwealth’s disability agencies, and permits us to remain focused on a person-centered, vocational training approach that incorporates the goals and interests of each individual.”Cape Abilities is committed to finding meaningful community-based employment for people with disabilities, and our Employment & Vocational Skills Training program is the perfect vehicle for achieving this goal.  It provides an accepting place where individuals proceed at a pace that is suited to their assessed needs and interests, in a setting that provides opportunities for them to build on their successes & gain self-confidence while developing skills that set them up for future success.
“We are honored to partner with Cape Abilities to support the economic mobility of individuals with disabilities and their families through their impactful workforce development programming,” said Miceal Chamberlain, Bank of America Massachusetts President. “By working together, we truly have the power to make a meaningful and positive difference for all.”
