Happy 4th

July 4th, 1776 a group of concerned citizens agreed there must be a better way to live. On that day, the Declaration of Independence was signed. This document declared to the world that we all have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

In the fall of 1961, a group of concerned citizens came together in the belief that their loved ones, dealing with disabilities had the right to live, work, and play in their home communities. May 1, 1962 Abilities Unlimited of Fort Smith opened for business. Over these many years, this Agency has held firm to the belief that life is precious, liberty can be described as the freedom to choose, and the pursuit of happiness is the greatest adventure.

May I wish you the happiest 4th of July possible.
