Abilities Foundation The origin of our support of the John Berg family can be traced back to Tom McKone, a former Abilities employee who obtained an Abilities Foundation B & G Endowment grant to purchase and install a wheelchair-accessible bedroom floor for John last year from Home Depot. When The Home Depot Foundation needed to select a c...haritable partner to administer funds for major home modifications, they selected us, and we were delighted.

Abilities Foundation We received a request for a B & G Endowment grant to fund the purchase of a wheelchair-accessible van to transport five-year old Tristan Goldade to schools, doctors and therapies. Among other conditions, Tristan has Down's Syndrome and West Syndrome (a form of epilepsy) and has gotten too big to transport by car. We do...n't have the funds to purchase a van, but we are seeking the donation of a used van that could work. Below is a photo of Tristan, who just graduated from Pre-K, and his teacher.
