Autism Supportive Community

With funding awarded from the Thomas Thompson Trust, we have collaborated with the Village of Rhinebeck to support their effort to establish the Village of Rhinebeck as an Autism Supportive Community.  This will be the first Autism Supportive Community in our region.

Businesses and organizations in the Village of Rhinebeck have committed to "Do One Thing" as part of the community's efforts to be designated as an Autism Supportive Community. Those who sign on to "Do One Thing" in Rhinebeck pledge to make at least one adjustment to their facilities or to the way they operate to accommodate people with special needs. The objective is to create a united and cohesive community that supports people with autism and their friends and loved ones.
