The Hudson Valley Autism Society is dedicated to serving the needs of the autism community in and around the Hudson Valley Region of New York. We are often the first point of contact for families that are new to this area and looking for resources. Through our own programming and referral to other local organizations, and through our grant program, we help people on the autism spectrum and their families feel supported, and find caring communities.
We serve the following eight counties in the Hudson Valley area:
Columbia, Dutchess, Greene, Orange, Putnam, Sullivan, Ulster, and Westchester County
WHO WE ARE
Our mission is to promote lifelong access and opportunities for people on the autism spectrum and their families, so they can be fully participating, included members of their communities. We do this through advocacy, public awareness, education, and compassionate support.
Our vision is to be the voice and resource for everyone who interacts with the autism community in the Hudson Valley Region. Locally, we are sustaining and growing our resource center to be a place for anyone who needs information about autism, that brings together members of the autism community. Statewide, we will be the driving force behind the development of a network of resources that promotes quality of life and opportunities for positive social experiences.
Our vision for our board of directors is a productive group of individuals with autism, families, and professionals from the autism community. They serve on the board because the work is inspiring, rewarding and enjoyable.
