Serving people with disabilities and offering safe, inclusive workplaces to thrive.

At TAC, people with and without disabilities collaborate in accepting work environments to learn new skills, create new things, and reinforce their sense of purpose. We provide meaningful work that helps our team members grow professionally, empowers and encourages them to share their voice, and prepares them to thrive beyond TAC.

Manufacturing cargo nets for the U.S. Air Force, crafting pet products, running a quick-service salad restaurant with produce grown in our very own hydroponic greenhouse – our team’s incredible work spans a wide range of industries. Though we have many services and business lines, they all power one mission: to empower people with disabilities through meaningful employment, training, and support.

We are — most of all — about people. Watch the video to learn more about who we are.  You’ll get a better idea of why the people we serve love to be part of the TAC team.



The Abilities Connection cares. While the names, locations, and staff of TAC may have changed over the years, our focus remains on providing life-changing opportunities for the people we serve.



The Abilities Connection empowers people with disabilities or with other barriers to achieve their full potential in community settings of their choice. They are the reason we are here.
