Ability Bash

Join us on September 30th at 7:00 p.m.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 6th annual Ability Bash will be a virtual event. 


Career Choices for People with Disabilities

Being able to make choices about your life is crucial for the independence and happiness of all people, including those with disabilities. With your support, you can help adults with disabilities gain equal employment opportunities, skill training, career planning and most importantly – choice. A job at MDI helps individuals gain independence and a sense of success, often for the first time in their lives.   


We have another fun program in the works for you.

“I look for opportunities to honor my sister’s memory who was born with Spina Bifida by advocating for people with disabilities.”

“My commitment to the mission stems from passion for human kindness, relationship development and equality.”

“I was born with a disability due to lack of oxygen at birth, but my life is not much that different than someone else.”

“MDI’s unique because they’ve taught us how to be more ‘open’ to other people’s differences and abilities. I’ve even gotten help building my resume and applying for jobs within MDI and outside MDI, all to better myself.”
