Need Areas

As many of you know Abilities of Texas Unlimited owns a property at 1415 W. Washington Street, Brownsville, Texas.

At that site there are approximately 50 people with intellectual disabilities living with supervision from our partner company. At this time there are specific needs which must be met. If you would like to donate to a specific need, please ensure that any donations by check, credit card, or Pay Pal (which also allows your credit card use) are clearly marked for one of the projects below:

Air Conditioning Unit - one of the roof units must be replaced this year. The estimated cost for this industrial air conditioner is $12,000. Donations for this project should be marked - HVAC Donation 2018.

Property Tax - Because Abilities of Texas Unlimited obtained the 1415 W. Washington Street Property after taxes were issued for the previous owner, a for-profit company, part of the agreement would be that Abilities of Texas Unlimited would pay the 2017 property taxes. Donations toward this relief will help ensure that the property remains secure and stable for the 50 people currently living there, the counseling services being provided, and the continued operation of Abilities of Texas Unlimited at our offices there. Current taxes owed are in excess of $37,000 for 2017. We are applying to Cameron County for an exemption based on our 501(c) 3 status as we move forward into 2018, so we hope this expense will not hinder our mission in the future. If you wish to donate toward this area, please ensure donations are marked - 2017 Proerpty Tax

Abilities of Texas Unlimited, Inc. is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping people with Intellectual Disabilities improve their lives. All donations are tax deductible, but more importantly - all donations will make a difference in the lives of the people we work to serve - no donations will ever be used for anything other than their specific need area - so you can rest assured that 100% of your donation will go to the project or area you dedicate it to.
