Ability Beyond was created by a group of parents who shared a common goal of improving the lives of their children with disabilities. The organization currently offers community-based support for people with disabilities in the Northeast, like, for instance, recreational and educational opportunities, as well as supported living. Their vision is to, “ensure that every person has the opportunity to live, work and be a part of their community”. Today, they are working towards this vision by building and renovating homes, expanding their employment services, and ensuring people with disabilities are treated fairly.
