Our Mission

ABLE's mission is to rid the world of its most devastating social ills—drugs, crime, illiteracy and immorality—through the social betterment methods and principles of author and humanitarian
L. Ron Hubbard.

Research has shown links between education failure, substance abuse, moral decay and crime. To address the interrelated nature of these social problems, ABLE and the organizations under its umbrella offer:

  • Substance abuse treatment and prevention services
  • Ex-offender re-entry and mentoring programs
  • Character and common sense morals education
  • Community and family literacy
  • Teacher training and professional development

Our Activities

ABLE is a non-profit charitable organization that assists the implementation of social betterment programs in communities throughout the world.

These programs, based on breakthrough methodologies developed by L. Ron Hubbard, focus on core problems that stand in the way of individual happiness and social progress: illiteracy and educational failure; substance abuse; criminality and the pervasive lowering or loss of moral standards.

Whether they operate in America 's inner-cities, the townships of South Africa or the human resource departments of major corporations, ABLE programs are distinguished by their remarkable results. These programs, originated as grass-roots efforts over the last 35 years, have grown to encompass more than 800 programs in 75 countries.
