  • 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.
