Philosophy / History

Abantu Group believes all people have rights to self-determination and self-actualization. We at Abantu Group hold respect, advocacy, encouragement, empowerment, and support our highest priorities. Abantu, which in the Zulu language means humanity, was founded upon the highest ideals of support services to people with developmental disabilities.

What Makes Us Stand Out?

Sometimes, it is difficult to differentiate and build your own identity. We at Abantu believe that although it may be difficult, it is not impossible. We believe that it is more effective to provide the highest quality of services to our clients.

Here’s what we can provide:

  1. Excellent customer service.
  2. Maintaining strong relationships.
  3. We remain sensitive to people with developmental disabilities.


Abantu is building inclusive communities where people with developmental disabilities receive quality support for their valued life. Abantu also helps them gain their full potential by maintaining our social mission of their independence and self-sufficiency. People with a developmental disability, just like people everywhere, need physical comfort, encouragement, empowerment and, a sense of belonging. Abantu will continue contributing to a society that reflects its signature statement and purpose: ONE PEOPLE, ONE WORLD!
