"Because I only have the use of one hand, the supervisors always help me try to do the contract.  They let me try things even when I don't know if I'll be able to do it.  They let me try even if it takes me five times longer.  I want to continue working at Abilities.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate a program like this that wants to help me be able to work.  I feel like Abilities has saved my life."
