March 23, 2016, marked a new beginning for the Delaware Association of Rehabilitation Facilities (DelARF). As of that date, DelARF began doing business as the Ability Network of Delaware (A.N.D.). This new identity more accurately reflects the focus of the Association’s membership on the strengths of the people they serve and the rich community interactions they develop, rather than on the limitations and restrictions they experience.

For nearly three decades, the Delaware Association of Rehabilitation Facilities (DelARF) has been committed to serving its organizational members, the community service providers who deliver direct services to Delawareans with disabilities who need assistance in community life, as well as to those who need treatment for substance use and mental health disorders.

The vision the Association has pursued over the last 29 years has been to increase opportunities for people with disabilities and other disadvantages to live, learn, and work in their local communities. By working with its members, state government, and other organizations, A.N.D. has pursued the removal of physical, economic, and social barriers so that persons with disabilities and others seeking to become more independent can achieve full and productive lives.
