We, at CABEL recognize that we could not effectively  provide our services and deliver our programs without working with our many partners in the community-at-large.  CABEL is fully committed to establishing and cultivating working/sharing relationships to create collaborative efforts that allow all participants to attain their organizational goals as well as meet the needs of the communities we serve.  As a young developing non-profit, we feel we can greatly learn from all of our partners.


Without the generous support of our funders and donors (financial and in-kind contributions), we could not adequately sustain our mission nor meet the challenges and needs of the many youth, individuals and families we serve.  Like many community-based organizations, funders and donors are integral components of  our ability to grow with the community-at-large.  It is with pride and heartfelt enthusiasm that we, at CABEL, acknowledge those who believe and support our mission.
