Your Impact


Autism Spectrum Disorder affects 1 in 68 American children (1 in 42 boys)!

Greystone Programs is dedicated to supporting children, adults and families living with Autism and other developmental disabilities by enriching lives one person at a time.

We offer a variety of services to over 500 children, adults and seniors each year. Funding is through the NYS Office for People with Developmental Disabilities. However, Greystone offers vital services for which there is no funding. These include a range of therapeutic expressive arts – including music, art, dance, equine therapies and other services. 

We are so dedicated to enriching the lives of our individuals that we are willing to leap from a plane to raise awareness and funds!

“My brother has been the fortunate recipient of the collective efforts of a cadre of angels and saints, cleverly disguised as human beings. They are all devoted to seeing that he is living his highest and best life.” – Sister of Greystone resident

This is where we need your help!
