Greystone Programs is a nonprofit human services agency that provides essential services and life- enriching opportunities for children, adults and families living with autism and other developmental disabilities. Founded in 1979 by Marc W. Kelley, Greystone Programs offered the first privately run home in New York State for people with autism. Our groundbreaking initiative was the first to provide residential support in a community environment. Greystone has 17 homes in Ulster, Dutchess and Orange counties and we are proud to provide essential services and life-enriching opportunities to more than 600 children, adults and families with autism and other developmental disabilities throughout five counties in the Mid-Hudson Valley. We employ a diverse team of more than 400 professionals who provide exceptional care and support through a variety of programs and services.

Michele Lawrenson is the Assistant Executive Director of Administration at Greystone Programs and oversees the Human Resources function at Greystone Programs for the past 17 years. She has a degree in Business Administration and over 25 years’ experience in the field of Human Resources, both with for-profit and not-for-profit industries. 

Samara Enders is the Director of Philanthropy in the Advancement Department at Greystone Programs. She has a degree in Communications and has extensive experience in not-for-profit development.

The Child Care Council of Orange County, Inc. was organized as a Non-Profit Corporation in 1971. The Council was organized to coordinate, assist and promote day care services in Orange County. Original funding came from RECAP (Regional Economic Community Action Program) and services were referrals to parents and training of child care center staff. In 1978 reduced funding to RECAP caused us to lose our funding. Via a group of center directors, we tried working with parents needing child care and to hold trainings at each other’s site to maintain staff development for about five years. Through the 1980’s we accessed funding of discretionary funds from one of our Assemblywomen and hired a director to continue parent referrals, were a resource for Work Family Directions parent referrals, became a sponsor of CACFP (Child Adult Care Food Program) and hired another staff person. About then the County started to certify Family Day Care Providers and we were given funding to train providers. With the 1990’s we became stronger, hired additional staff and were awarded the CCR&R (Child Care Resource and Referral) contract from NYS DSS (Department of Social Services) and in 1994 were given the Registrar contract by Orange County. Today we continue all of the above services under contracts from NYS OCFS (Office of Children and Family Services – www.ocfs.state.ny.us) , USDA NYS DOH CACFP (United States Department of Agriculture, Department of Health – www.fns.usda.gov/cnd/care), Orange County DSS (Department of Social Services), and Professional Development Program (http://www.ecetp.pdp.albany.edu/).
