DID YOU KNOW?! The Rum and Coke evolved from another mixed drink called the Cuba Libre, a beverage that combines rum and Coke with fresh lime juice. The phrase "Cuba Libre!" ("Free Cuba!") was a rallying cry during the Spanish-American War in 1898. Now you know!
Come raise your glass and say cheers to 25 years for our beloved Executive Director, Michelle Prendergast! Don't forget to RSVP at the link below, and please consider making a donation of $25 or more to the ACVA in honor of Michelle's years of service, what better way to honor Michelle than to give to the organization she loves so much. Thanks! See you next Thursday!

A HUGE thank you to everyone from the Ability Center for keeping spirits up and smiles on all of our faces. Cards, surprises, Zoom sessions with musical guests, BINGO games, art group and just the chance for everyone to see and hear their friends is so important now. Thank you for always being so wonderful and caring. ❤️
Wanted to share this photo from camp a few years ago. We will miss you, beautiful young Jessica!
Come join us for our annual event March 7, 2020
Hey, Ms. Anna, Ms. Michelle and the whole cast of people from the Ability Center of Virginia! Thanks for inviting me and Kaz to your Christmas Party at the Grand Affairs Catering tonight! We all had a great time! And what made it even more special was having both of us here including me, Stephen Neagle. I'm your old pal!
Hey, People from the Ability Center of Virginia! I’ve met Cary before I went to the Norfolk Tides Baseball Game for Eggleston’s Night at the Ballpark! He missed me on Card Making Wednesday and I’ve introduced him my new workmate friend, Lavelle Goodman from the Naval Station Galley today and we both worked really really hard and fast together and I’ve done excellent on my work performance!
Hello, People from the Ability Center of Virginia including Ms. Ashley Hall! I’ve enjoyed The Lion King Musical show, 2 days ago and it was great! I’ve been a lovely person! Me, my Mom and my Aunt Tammy have been the best audience ever!
The Official Virginia Beach Video! Hope you enjoy!!
Michelle you did an awesome job today! I am so proud of you. Ashley was great also!
Hey, Ability Center of Virginia! Ms. Tonya Bright Doebler texted me, “We did letter cards today. Missed you”.
Hey, Everyone from the Ability Center! Sorry, me and my Mom are missing all of you at the ACoVA’s 23rd Annual Gala, “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” tonight because the tickets have been sold out! But I’ve got my new same work job back, Food Service at the Naval Station Galley at Naval Station Norfolk! Yesterday, I’ve washed the dishes and the good news is that the conveyor belt is fixed and the scullery smells like pool water! Mrs. May called my Mom and she said I did great!
Isaac, 8, is an outgoing, energetic, inquisitive, and funny child. He gets along well with his peers and enjoys chatting with adults. He enjoys singing, playing games with other children, and listening to music. Isaac was abandoned at 2 years old. He is diagnosed with mild cerebral palsy. Isaac came to live in the orphanage in 2016 after spending many years in a cerebral palsy hospital in another province. He began attending school in the orphanage and working with a non-governmental organization (NGO). The attention and services he received there helped him immensely. Isaac has never had any surgeries for his cerebral palsy. He receives rehabilitation training four times per week. He walks very well with his walking aid and the NGO believes he will be able to move independently without a walker if he continues receiving these services. They also believe he has a good prognosis for independent living in adulthood. Isaac has good self-care skills. He can eat, drink, use the toilet, wash his face, and brush his teeth without assistance. He has both bowel and bladder control. Isaac loves to go to school and is described as intelligent and thoughtful. He has been learning English in school for the past year and is doing very well. He knows the alphabet, common phrases, feeling words, and more. He is working hard to learn to write in English. Isaac is able to communicate well and has good expressing ability. He likes to ask questions and discuss his ideas. Isaac is an adventurous child that enjoys new experiences. He asks about his friends who have been adopted and wonders when his family will come for him. He longs for adventure with a family of his own. Will your family be the one who will bring Isaac home? For more information, please contact Cradle of Hope Adoption Center at 301-587-4400. A $5,000 grant is available for Isaac’s adoption.
