How it all started

 Ability Tree was founded in 2010 by missionaries, Joe and Jen Butler, who made it their mission to come alongside families impacted by disability to provide R.E.S.T.

When Joe and Jen's son, Micah, was diagnosed with multiple disabilities, they realized the overwhelming need for support of families who are impacted by disability. Driven to make community possible and make Jesus accessible across the U.S., Ability Tree was planted. 

Branching out

In 2023 we branched out further by launching Ability Tree Treasure Coast in Florida and by equipping more churches nationally through the national Consulting Branch.  

We now have  4 Community branches dedicated to "making community possible" for families impacted by disability, and a  Consulting branch that equips churches nationally to help "make Jesus accessible" to families in their local communities.

Where we are headed

 We are excited for what's next for Ability Tree! Our National Office is established, and our team is growing to better serve families and equip churches.

We are expanding efforts and partnerships across the nation to establish two new Community Branches in Utah and in Minnesota.

Ability Tree Treasure Coast is gaining momentum and preparing to launch programming by hosting the branch's first community event in Stuart, FL in May. TheTreasure Coast leadership is actively fundraising and seeking a permanent multi-use space to begin regular programming and house our offices.

Thank you for your constant support, prayers, and encouragement!
