Abilitree Hopes to Move to New Location


In a story heard first on 1110 KBND, the head of Abilitree calls it his "field of dreams" a new much larger facility that is very visible. Executive Director of Abilitree, Jim Lee says they are hoping to move their 2 service sectors under one roof to the 12,000 square foot "Workensport" building on Reed Market and 9th Street. "One of the themes of that is bringing people with disabilities into the light of our community, and we want to have this be a legacy for our community and in the future people will know exactly where to go. Right now we're kind of buried in an industrial and residential area; tough to know where to go to get services." Abilitree is a local resource for adults with developmental and physical disabilities. Some Abilitree clients work at the Oxford Hotel, Deschutes Brewery and Sara Bella Upcycled. Lee was a guest on 1110 KBND's 'Your Town.'
