About Abel Enterprises
Starting out as a social enterprise in 1984, ABEL Enterprises was created to provide skill development and supportive employment to individuals 16 years of age and up who are living with a mental illness.
ABEL Enterprises operates a woodworking business with skilled trades people providing instruction and support. Members of the ABEL program receive training in safety, machine operation, quality control, and product assembly.
We receive contracts from a variety of community sources - including school boards - requesting construction of specialized assistive devices. Individuals attending ABEL will also be given the opportunity to construct projects for themselves.
