For 40 years

Our mission is to equip adults with special needs with the knowledge, skills and behavior needed to lead useful and productive lives, with dignity, respect and independence.

Located on a 12 acre campus in Boca Raton, Florida, the Habilitation Center, which was incorporated in 1978, is a private, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.

By offering a challenging range of comprehensive, individually-tailored vocational training programs and support services, our adults with disabilities have a unique opportunity to maximize their inherent potential and to become productive, contributing members of the community.

While a body and mind may have limitations, the power and potential of the human spirit, when nurtured in an empowering environment like the Habilitation Center, are limitless.

There is always something fun happening at the Hab Center! With the help of our Masters level interns and volunteers, the Hab Center is able to offer clients a bustling and energy environment. Balance is Key! Our clients love the different options they can choose from between work programs and other exciting events and diversions. In addition to individual and group counseling provided, interns also facilitate dance, art, cooking and daily living skills groups. Basketball and soccer are also a great break in the day!
