Our History and Mission


Our History: In 2001, founders Rebecca Eichhorn and Nancy Snider were asked to develop and operate a pilot project in conjunction with the Marion County Health Department. The project used peer-led support to offer a recovery-based program to county residents with mental health and co-occurring issues.

The pilot program was an overwhelming success, and Project ABLE was formed in 2003 as a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) corporation.

Our Mission:  Provide peer-to-peer services and supports for individuals recovering from mental health and/or co-occurring issues. These supports and services embrace human dignity, expand the capacity for individuals to recover, and promote lifelong empowerment.
