About MAB Community Services
Since 1973, MAB has provided supports in a range of residential and vocational settings in the Greater Boston area for adults with developmental disabilities, brain injuries, and secondary disorders such as blindness, deafness, behavioral challenges, cerebral palsy, and issues related to aging. Our experience allows us to help adults with diverse needs maximize their independence and enjoy the best possible quality of life.
Hundreds of young adults graduating from special education become eligible for state-funded employment and residential supports in Massachusetts each year. To help respond to this growing need, MAB opened its first residences for young adults. Local businesses and organizations partner with MAB to provide innovative vocational, volunteer and recreational opportunities. We also collaborate with other service providers and work with families to ensure that individuals with disabilities can pursue their dreams and live full lives in the community.
