The Guild for Exceptional Children is a not-for-profit agency that was founded in 1958 by parents and friends of people with developmental disabilities.
GEC grew from a dedicated group of parents volunteering their time to support each other to a leading-edge advocacy agency that spearheaded community living options, opening the very first group home in New York City in 1970.
Our Mission is to help children and adults living with developmental disabilities lead dignified and satisfying lives, reaching their fullest potential and assisting families in every step of their journey.
GEC is dedicated to providing exceptional support and services that will enable children and adults to lead respected and fulfilling lives in their community.
