New Jersey Branch: About

Jen and Joe Butler founded Ability Tree in NJ in 2010. After the Butler family was called to Arkansas (Ability Tree Headquarters), Ability Tree programming continued in NJ. Ability Tree of New Jersey officially became an affiliate of Ability Tree in December 2017. We are excited to build on what the Butlers have started by supporting individuals and families impacted by disability in our community/.
