ODESSA - One Odessa group is stepping up their efforts to help those with physical disabilities.

Living an independent life is the goal of many people with physical disabilities and most of the time that just doesn't happen.

The Able Center has been providing help to these people for more than 15 years.

The Center gives all kinds of assistance, everything from computer to money management to independent living classes.

They even provide walkers, wheelchairs, and shower chairs.

The Director of the Center tells NewsWest 9 having a service group like this is important for the community.

"We are the only agency that works specifically with people with disabilities. Some people work with the elderly or with the low income. We work with everyone that has a disability," Able Center Director, Marilyn Hancock, said.

All the services from the Able Center are free and no medical documentation is needed to prove a physical disability.

If you need help from the Able Center, call 580-3439.
