Abilities Rec, Inc
Abilities Rec is an inclusive rec center for children and adults of all ages and all abilities to come socialize and engage in a variety of recreational activities. A place that's "Fun For All Ages".
What makes your business one of the best small businesses in your community?
Our mission is "To provide a safe and supportive environment where individuals of all ages and all abilities come to socialize and engage in a wide variety of recreational activities.” Being in the field of special education for the past 14 years, particularly Autism, Jamie quickly realized that there simply are not enough leisure, recreation, and fitness based settings or activities available to meet the evolving needs of the children, adolescents and adults who are a part of our community. We are dedicated to providing a truly inclusive environment where individuals can be themselves and have fun.
Abilities Rec, Inc. is committed to providing opportunities for individuals and their families in South Shore and South Coast of Massachusetts by offering a number of unique programs, Summer Fun Days, birthday parties, school events, a Multi-Sensory Motor Room, among other activities designed specifically to meet the needs of every participant; all ages and all abilities.

How has working with a SCORE mentor helped your business?
Working with Dennis really opened our eyes as to the expectations we need to set forth to financial institutions and really guided us in putting together a detailed and thorough Business Plan.
Please describe the specific ways that your business has been successful and how it will grow in the next year.
Working with those in the Special Needs community, we plan to continue to reach out to schools, parents and educational collaborative's to further spread our mission. We provide a valuable service to those in which fun, recreational activities are limited, or they cannot participate in as it is a major sensory issue. We are not limited by age as our goal is fun for all ages and all abilities. We also are in the works to work with and partner with organizations that deal with adults in group homes and residential home programs.
