Johnson City, NY (WBNG Binghamton) ACHIEVE opens doors for those with disabilities. On Monday, they opened new doors of their own.

ACHIEVE cut the ribbon of its new facility Monday afternoon on Riverside Drive in Johnson City.

Although ACHIEVE's address has changed, their mission remains the same: To help provide independence and teach life skills to people with disabilities in the Southern Tier.

This is the fourth building ACHIEVE has in Broome and Tioga counties.

Achieve CEO Mary Jo Thorn says this space gives them more room, especially because one of their buildings is under construction.

"It's a combination of pre-vocational training space as well as office space due to the fact our Cutler Pond Road site is undergoing major renovations to expand our program," Thorn said.
