MOUNT KISCO - A Mount Kisco company is helping people with developmental disabilities find places to live and work.

Ability Beyond is a nonprofit organization that helps people with developmental disabilities achieve independence in the community.

Without Walls, or WOW, is an internship program set up by the organization that provides jobs for its members throughout the Hudson Valley.

Holiday Inn general manager Melody Lloyd says bringing in interns from the program was an easy decision

"They're happy no matter what task you give them, they do it with a smile," she says. “It makes you feel good to be around them and really want to do your job better."

Jorge, an intern in the program, says it makes him feel trustworthy because he feels as if he has done something special on the days he works.
