Programs & Services

Ability Beyond’s programs have one consistent and vital goal – to empower the people we serve to live full and rewarding lives. Our programs give them the supports they need to go beyond what was ever imagined possible.
Who We Help
We assist over 3,000 individuals – many living with developmental disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, brain injury, mental illness, and often, accompanying physical challenges.
Whether providing assistance at a challenging time or supporting an individual throughout their lifetime – Ability Beyond is there to discover, build and celebrate the ability in all people.

Residential Living Programs

Our residential programs in Connecticut and New York provide so much more than shelter – they surround our residents with comfort, care, friendship and a supportive environment to realize their dreams.

Employment Programs

Built on over 30 years of success, our nationally recognized programs prepare individuals for meaningful employment and instill self sufficiency and self worth – and provide employers with a dedicated, quality workforce.

Transition Services

These programs ensure successful transition as young adults move from secondary education to adult life. Our “whole life” approach to career preparation helps discover their unique strengths and gain skills for meaningful employment.

Day Programs

Our diverse day programs provide community activities that engage and expose participants in fun and rewarding experiences. Programs are tailored around the unique interests and personal goals of each participant.

Supplemental Services

We provide a wide range of services that promote self-reliance, health and well-being. Whether mental or physical health services, or clinical supports, our services empower those with disabilities to lead productive, healthy, and happy lives.

Family Support

Family is important. And when your loved one is part of the Ability Beyond family, so are you.
