Our Mission

The mission of The Able Trust is to advance employment for Floridians with disabilities through engagement, investment, and collaboration.

Established by the Florida Legislature in 1990, The Able Trust is a 501(c)(3) public charity. As the direct support organization for the Florida Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, we support efforts to raise awareness and increase employment opportunities of Floridians with disabilities.

Today’s students are our future workforce, and The Able Trust youth programs support students with disabilities by providing transition services to help prepare them for life after high school. Using the nationally recognized Guideposts for Success, High School High Tech, Futures in Focus and The Able Trust Ambassadors program help connect students with disabilities to a future they might not have thought possible.

The Able Trust Strategic Priorities


The Able Trust is the thought leader who shares data–not just economic data, but evidenced-based research and best practices. The Able Trust uses research to better understand and support Florida’s disability employment systems and stakeholders.


The Able Trust works with stakeholders around Florida including employers, educators, career service providers, elected officials and community leaders to raise awareness, make connections, and build collaborations.

Capacity Building

Through a multi-prong approach, The Able Trust will identify evidence-based practices, establish standards to ensure quality implementation, collaboration and partnerships, and facilitate collaboration and shared learning.
