Not only do we love Cape Abilities for the work they do on behalf of people with disabilities across the Cape, but we also love them for the innovative and unique way they do it. Besides providing educational, residential and therapeutic services, Cape Abilities offers employment for their clients much of the time through their own entrepreneurial activities.
In addition to managing two retails locations – a consignment shop in Barnstable Village and a market and gallery in Chatham – as well as running a successful vending business and a program for welcoming visitors to Cape Cod, they also operate Cape Abilities Farm on Route 6A in Dennis that has attracted a loyal following of people who crave high-quality, locally grown produce. What’s more, they just broke ground on a new, year-round facility at their farm that will act as a community agricultural center.
All of the ventures provide jobs and raise revenue for the people they serve. We too can help raise revenue for the people they serve by participating in their 5k walk/run on Saturday, May 17 at the Hyannis Village Green.
