TAC - The Abilities Connection

TAC – The Abilities Connection (also known as TAC Industries) is an amazing place.  We are a nonprofit that employs, connects and cares for people with developmental or physical disabilities.

How do we do it?  We do it by meeting the needs of our customers and the people we serve.  As a blend of human services agency, workshop, and supplier to several local businesses, we are unique.  We are the primary supplier of cargo nets to the U.S. Air Force.  We also repair nets which saves the Air Force thousands of dollars. The people who come to work at TAC every day gain independence, self-confidence, and dignity.

We are — most of all — about people.  Watch the video to meet a few of the individuals we serve by providing work opportunities in the cargo net business.  You’ll get a better idea of why the nearly 300 people who we serve,  people we are fiercely proud of, love to work here.  It’s not just for the paycheck.



The Abilities Connection cares. While the names, locations, and staff of TAC may have changed over the years, our mission has not.



We employ, connect, and care for people with disabilities in community settings of their choice. They are the reason we are here.
