AWB Online© Has Been Paused
With 97% of our individuals back to in-person programming, we are pausing our AWB Online© offering. There is still a virtual services option for individuals still at home. You can use the password protected “Virtual Services” tab on this website. The password is the same as AWB Online©. If you are a new individual or caregiver, contact us for password and link information: 203-272-5607. Thank you for your participation. If you have any questions about AWB Online© contact Online Director Chris Loynd: 203-209-4632.
Our deepest condolences. Mrs. Barra and her husband Nicholas were founding members of Cheshire Occupational Career Opportunities (COCO) which became Abilities Without Boundaries (AWB). Their daughter Paula was for many years a participant in COCO, then AWB day programs. Our sincere gratitude to Mrs. Barra and her extended family, including her son-in-law Stephen and his brother Mark Proffitt. Both Proffitt brothers have served on the Board of Directors of AWB and continue to support our program as volunteers.

Through no fault of their own, the individuals we serve deal with difficulties you and I can only imagine. In these COVID times, some of them simply do not understand. They ask only for opportunities to be active, socialize, participate and contribute. Days spent at AWB mean so very much to the disabled adults and the caregivers responsible for them. Generous donors like you help us support special programs beyond our state provision: music therapy and virtual services for those still homebound. In this season when we are all so grateful for what we have, can we count on your to help the wonderful people who count on us? PLEASE DONATE in any amount.
IMPORTANT Regarding COVID-19
Please Review our COVID-19 Protocols
AWB’s Board of Directors and Executive Staff members recognize the impact COVID-19 decisions will have on our individuals, employees and staff, and do not take these steps lightly. We know that many of our individuals will not understand the disruption to their daily routines. We also know that our loyal employees are the lifeblood of our business, supporting the people with disabilities we serve. Still, health and safety must be our first priority. We are in continual contact with DDS and other relevant authorities. If you are able to make a donation to AWB, please do so now. Our need has never been greater. We ask that our job and volunteer sites still active, bear with us as we work to service your needs. (Job sites may contact Career Services Coordinator.) Our greatest hope is to continue to find a way forward in supporting adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
We will post notices as more information becomes available on our website www.AbilitiesWithoutBoundaries.org and our Facebook Page www.facebook.com/AbilitiesWithoutBoundaries/. We hope to resume normal operations as soon as it is reasonably practicable and safe to do so.

AWB Board of Directors President
