The nonprofit Ability Beyond has opened an office in Norwalk. It occupies the entire building at 61 East Ave.

The organization is headquartered in Bethel and Chappaqua, New York. It provides a wide range of services for more than 3,000 people with disabilities that inhibit their daily activities. Among the services are employment training, job placement, cognitive and life skills instruction, clinical and therapeutic support, and volunteer and recreational activities.

The ribbon-cutting event at the new space included an open house and remarks from legislative officials and community partners. The Norwalk office will help Ability Beyond reach more people in the lower Fairfield County region, including New Canaan, Darien, Stamford, Greenwich and other communities.
