Non-Profit Organization for Intellectually Disabled

Unlimited Abilities is a not-for-profit organization that operates as a group home and community support organization for individuals diagnosed with Chronic Mental Illnesses. Unlimited Abilities provides housing, in-home assistance, and community support. Unlimited Abilities was founded in 2017 by Shirley Tramble.

The plan is for Unlimited Abilities to be a prominent Iowa city-based not-for-profit
organization. The Unlimited Abilities mission statement is to provide client-centered care while promoting integrity, independence, and a sense of belonging.

From an early age, Shirley Tramble was able to perceive what having a mental illness was. One of Shirley’s close family members were diagnosed with Paranoid Schizophrenia after leaving home for college. During this time, not much was understood about the condition and the treatment. Mental illness left them feeling confused, sad, and alone.

Learning how this made them feel fueled Shirley to educate herself on mental illnesses and support anyone affected. Individuals diagnosed with mental illnesses often feel that they don’t ‘’belong’’ and should not be a part of a community.

Unlimited Abilities would like to bridge that gap and make these individuals feel like they are apart of our community.

Thank you in advance for considering Unlimited Abilities. We look forward to serving our community!
