Our CAPABLE program remains on hold as COVID-19 continues to limit our ability to visit clients in their homes. We hope to resume this exciting, empowering program by summer 2021.
Meanwhile, we offer YMOW clients the opportunity to communicate via telehealth with our clinical and social work staff. If you or your loved one has an issue that might be helped by our social worker, occupational therapist or nursing staff, please contact us.

This free program takes place over about 5 months.
