Arizona Bridge to Independent Living
Have you visited ABIL.org lately? The website is a one stop, comprehensive guide to independent living in Arizona and reflects the mission and resources of this great organization.
ABIL advocates personal responsibility – by, and for, people with disabilities – as a means to independence.
To help consumers achieve self-sufficiency, ABIL offers comprehensive programs including independent living skills instruction; information and referral; peer support; advocacy; home modification; ADA training and counsel; outreach to rehab centers & early intervention for newly disabled individuals; reintegration from nursing homes; employment services; Social Security work incentives; empowering youth in transition; personal assistant services and social recreational programs.
Through its comprehensive programs, ABIL touches the lives of individuals with disabilities and addresses the disability concerns of their family members, co-workers and employers.
ABIL began in 1977 as the Arizona Congress for Action (ACA), a group of people with diverse physical disabilities who launched a grass roots effort to educate the community about disability-related issues in Central Arizona. In 1978, Congress enacted Independent Living Center legislation as part of the amended Rehabilitation Act of 1973. In 1981, ABIL received funding and began services.
With more than 80 staff members, over 2,100 personal assistants and dozens of volunteers, ABIL has offices in Phoenix, Mesa, and the West Valley, and provides services throughout Maricopa County.
What makes QTS different? We are different because we actually go above and beyond for the patient and the patient’s needs. In short, we care about our quality in transportation.
What drives or fuels your passion to help others or perform your specific role? As a former driver, I understand what it’s like to be out on the road day after day. I know about the variety of situations that the drivers can face that make it difficult to do their job. Although I’ve been a dispatcher for the last three years my experience as a driver motivates me to be the support they need.
What do want the clients to know about you? What I think people should know about me is that is that I have a strong work ethic. I am very committed to what I do and take full accountability for our performance when I’m sitting at the dispatch desk. I also understand that there are several times when things happen out of our control, but I am extra hard on myself to be as perfect as humanly possible for our drivers, passengers and clients’ sake.
