Valley organization helps find jobs for adults with intellectual disabilities

PHOENIX, Ariz. (KSAZ) - Some people who never thought they'd be able to enter the workforce are finding amazing jobs. It's all thanks to a non-profit that helps adults with intellectual disabilities find work. 

"The first day they came in and I actually saw them get to work, I had no concern whatsoever," said Mitch Murray with Muscular Moving Men. 

One Step Beyond, Inc. is an organization that provides dynamic programs for individuals with intellectual disabilities. 

"Our job is let them be dynamic, to learn and grow, basic life skills and advanced life skills and the ultimate goal is to get them meaningful employment," said Jeff Swanson with One Step Beyond, Inc. "Just because they have a disability doesn't mean they have an inability to work and have that joy and since of satisfaction of getting a job done."

Their hard work and work ethic are appreciated.

"These guys come in, they're employees of muscular moving men, they're part of our family," said Murray.
