Project ABLE provides peer-to-peer services and supports for individuals recovering from mental health and co-occurring issues. These supports and services embrace human dignity, recognize the capacity for individuals to recover, and promote life-long empowerment.
Founders Rebecca Eichhorn and Nancy Snider developed a pilot project in 2001 to offer Peer Support to Marion County residents with mental health and co-occurring issues.
It was an overwhelming success, and lead to the creation of Project ABLE in 2003 which became the first non-profit organization approved by the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) to provide Peer Support Specialist Training.
Today, volunteers support hundreds of individuals in 6 Oregon counties. With peers from all walks of life attending the many activities happening on campus.
A leader in Peer Support, peer services, and trainings in Oregon, Project ABLE has offices in both Salem and McMinnville.
