ABOUT ABEL

The Haldimand Norfolk Work Group of Simcoe Inc. (operating as Abel Enterprises)  began in 1981 as a grass-roots initiative when  5 individuals formed friendships through social entrepreneurship. 

 

They worked together to provide yardwork services in Norfolk County, and in 1983 the group incorporated to become a mental health agency through the Ministry of Health.

Today, Abel Enterprises continues to support consumer-survivors of mental health and addictions in our community.
