Making Community Possible

Community Branches make community possible for families impacted by disability by cultivating a disability inclusive environment where families can  recharge AND re-connect locally.

Each branch offers programming, events, support, and more for the whole family including individuals with disability,  their parents, their caregivers, and  theirsiblings !


4 locations in 3 states, with a vision to plant more.

(855) 288-6735 ext. 2
Our first Community Branch and state of the art R.E.S.T. Center!

Joe and Jen Butler, founders of Ability Tree, were college students studying pastoral ministry when their son Micah was diagnosed with developmental disabilities. During that time they began to discover the deep needs of support and rest for families impacted by disability. After pastoring for five years, they and felt compelled to  be a part of the solution, and in 2010, they founded Ability Tree to realize that mission. 

The Butlers moved to Arkansas in 2011 and launched the first Ability Tree Community Branch in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. Through faithfully serving families in the area, the outreach grew, and in
2019, through generous donations, founders Joe and Jen Butler built Ability Tree's state of the art R.E.S.T. Center. Ability Tree Arkansas is deeply connected in the Northwest Arkansas community and continues to serve the families of children and adults impacted by disability with weekly and monthly programing.

In line with the heart and vision of founders, Joe and Jen,  more Community Branches with R.E.S.T. Centers are being developed across the United States!

After the Butler family was called to Arkansas, Ability Tree programming continued  serving families in New Jersey, becoming an affiliate of Ability Tree in December 2017.

In addition to Ability Camp, a summer camp for adults with disability, Ability Tree New Jersey is excited to continue to support individuals and families impacted by disability in line with the heart and mission of our founders, Joe and Jen Butler!



Ability Camp is a 5 day, 4 night over-night camp for adults with disabilities. Throughout the week, campers are able to connect and build friendships that will last a lifetime as they swim, zip line, rock climb,  create art, fish, sing, hear from our quest speakers, and more.

Two camps in two locations 
AT camp is a highlight of the year for all of us.  We had a blast again this year.
