Catholic Community Foundation Supports ABLE for Seventh Year

In this seventh year of giving, Audio & Braille Literacy Enhancement, (ABLE), has again received a grant from the Catholic Community Foundation. The Catholic Community Foundation ( is making a difference in the lives of blind and visually impaired children by giving these children an equal playing field in which to participate fully in their academic classes through having braille materials at their fingertips.

To receive this grant in our 58th year of service is much appreciated. Thank you to the Catholic Community Foundation for your generosity.

One of our first donors fifty-eight years ago was the Catholic Arch Diocese of Milwaukee. After fifty-eight years we are still going strong – putting braille, tactile, and audio materials into the hands of blind and print disabled individuals. We couldn’t continue to fulfill ABLE’s mission without the support of generous funders such as the Catholic Community Foundation.

Audio and Braille Literacy Enhancement, Inc. (ABLE) is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that provides alternative ways for people with print disabilities to read.  ABLE was started in 1965 by a group of volunteers who learned how to braille in order to transcribe textbooks for blind students at local elementary schools. Today, ABLE provides braille, tactile, and audio transcriptions of books and other printed materials for persons who are blind, visually impaired or have print disabilities that prevent them from reading standard print.
