    Zosia's Challenge

    Thank you Kristin (long time member) for meeting Zosia's challenge! Zosia has a challenge for you. Her family donated $50 to help us increase our support for people isolated during the COVID-19 crisis. Funds will also be used to help us launch our new website that will enable us to continue this level of support for thousands more members across the country!

    You don't need to feel isolated!

    For thirty years we have been connecting youth and young adults online for friendship and support, especially at times when the curve balls life throws at us leave us feeling isolated and unsure. Ability Online continues to be a safe and supportive place for young people of all abilities and their families to connect. If you are staying at home to look after your health and well-being, we have people you can chat with, fun recipes and craft ideas, and a library of books and videos for the preschooler right through to beyond high school level readers.

    Students proudly wear their Ability Online Pink Shirts!
