Membership OverviewAdaptable & Inclusive

The Ability Network of Delaware (A.N.D.) is the voice of disability service providers in Delaware.

Our constituents include 40 member organizations serving over 100,000 Delawareans: 80,000 individuals with disabilities and other life challenges, 40,000 parents, guardians, and family members, and the 5,000 staff members who support them. The state funds these A.N.D. agencies to provide 80% of the services provided by the state to Delawareans with disabilities. We advocate for a strong system of community-based care and broad implementation of services that will allow all people with disabilities to live more independent and productive lives.

A.N.D. is Delaware’s only membership association of private community organizations that provide services to people with disabilities.
