Able SC is a Center for Independent Living (CIL), an organization not about “helping” people with disabilities, but built on the central concept of self-empowerment. It’s a consumer-controlled, community-based, cross disability nonprofit that provides an array of independent living services. We do everything it takes to empower people with disabilities to live active, self-determined lives: advocacy, service and support. More than half of our staff are persons with disabilities, as are over half of our Board of Directors. We didn’t just learn this; we live it. Able SC serves the following counties: Chester, Clarendon, Calhoun, Fairfield, Kershaw, Lee, Lexington, Newberry, Orangeburg, Richland, Saluda, Sumter, York, Abbeville, Anderson, Cherokee, Greenville, Greenwood, Laurens, Oconee, Pickens, Spartanburg, and Union.
