We provide exceptional training and continuing education, competitive pay and benefits, and opportunities for advancement. We share a commitment to excellence.
Financial Stability & Independence Greystone seeks new opportunities and creates innovative programs through the exploration of new and diverse funding sources, increased fundraising revenues, and continued improvement of the business decision-making process. Greystone optimizes the agency’s infrastructure through continually evaluating and enhancing systems, facilities, and technology to effectively support organizational goals.
In 1979, we opened Greystone House, the first group home in New York State for people living with Autism. Our groundbreaking program — through leadership of our founder and former executive director, Marc W. Kelley — was the first to provide residential support in a community environment.
Greystone has grown tremendously since our beginning, now offering exceptional services and life-enriching opportunities in five counties for more than 500 children, adults, and families with Autism and other developmental disabilities. Today, Greystone House is home to seven men who function within the range of severe to profound intellectual disabilities – it is just one of 14 homes Greystone now operates. Our services are available in Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Ulster, and Columbia counties, and include programs in residential and non-residential settings.
Greystone Programs remains committed to providing quality supports that meet the ever-changing needs of the communities we serve. We welcome hearing from you (contact us) and encourage your financial support through private and corporate gifts. Please help us meet the challenges we face today, and in coming years, by making a tax-deductible contribution to Greystone Foundation. Your gift will support and create new opportunities for people of many different skill levels to experience the joy of self-worth through personal and group achievement.
