About Us

Our Story

CNNH II, inc. (formerly NeurAbilities) was formed in 2008 in order to enhance and support the lives of individuals and their families afflicted by neurological and related disorders.

In 2016 the Board of Trustees refined our focus on meeting the need for creative arts programming for this undeserved population in the Greater Philadelphia and South Jersey region. CNNH II will begin offering programming at multiple area locations such as movement and wheelchair dancing, hands on Music Together sessions, Ballroom Dancing, Choral Connections, and creativity workshops.



Transforming lives of people with neurological disorders through arts, education and research. 



Empowering special needs communities by increasing their community inclusion, knowledge and supports through arts, education and research. To foster independence, self-esteem and artistic expression by participation in CNNH II arts programs.


Our New Focus

I. Support the Development of an Arts Center while expanding our creative arts programming.

II. Create family networking opportunities to share resources and support.

III. Development of electronic resources to expand and better support our family network.
