AWB strives to provide excellence in leadership, education, advocacy, quality and service for all of our participants.  Our passion is to empower those with disabilities to uncover and pursue their dreams.  We envision the highest level of customer service that provides businesses and the community with outstanding support, quality work, and clear communication that demonstrate the true potential of our clients to achieve beyond expectations.

our history

Since 1978, Abilities Without Boundaries has helped individuals with developmental disabilities lead a more productive and fulfilling life.  In 2011, AWB changed our name from Cheshire Occupational & Career Opportunities (COCO) to Abilities Without Boundaries and has continued expanding our impact throughout the state. What began with a few concerned parents has blossomed into an organization with almost 50 employees who all share a deep and profound respect for the individuals we serve.  For 30 years, we have been helping to make a difference throughout CT.
