People with developmental disabilities are largely excluded from the labour market and have an unemployment rate of 35%.  ShopAbilities was founded to change this by creating a social enterprise that supports the unique needs of the people we support. ShopAbilities aims to create an environment that unites community, innovation, education, employment, and support for people with developmental disabilities and their families and friends.

At ShopAbilities, our motto is, “Give, Buy and Feel Good,” and all sales proceeds are reinvested in ShopAbilities. We ask community members to donate used books which we sell on our e-commerce site. You can help support people with developmental disabilities by donating your used books or buying from our e-commerce site at Store – Abilities Community Services
