Guild For Exceptional Children
- 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.
