Compassionate Care and Support

Delivering vital services for individuals with Autism and other Developmental Disabilities for over 45 years

Founded in 1976 as The Groden Center, The Groden Network has its roots in providing support for children and youth on the autism spectrum. Over time, we’ve expanded to offer programs to individuals of all ages (through three distinct corporations), at over 25 locations across Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

Today, we’re proud to be a leader in the development and delivery of the highest-quality services that empower individuals of all abilities and their families to achieve happy and productive lives.

The Groden Center

The Groden Center is designed for children and teens and provides a complete range of support services. These include early intervention, treatment foster care, residential, and community/home-based services, and our renowned day school.

The Cove Center

Designed for adults 21 and over in Rhode Island, The Cove Center provides habilitative and residential programs with a focus on developing crucial life skills. We work with patients to build vocational skills, and partner with community organizations like the Providence Parks Department to ensure our clients gain valuable experience operating The Groden Greenhouse.

The Halcyon Center

Founded in 1983, The Halcyon Center focuses on serving adults 22 and older. It provides a full range of services for clients on the autism spectrum, as well as those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including dual diagnosis disorders. The center focuses on independence, productivity, and integration through a person-centered approach.

Our Mission

The mission of The Groden Network is to provide a continuum of the highest quality supports to individuals with autism, other neuro-developmental disorders, and associated behavioral challenges across the lifespan. Individuals served can lead productive, dignified, and happy lives through the provision of comprehensive, caring, and person-centered services. This is achieved through the implementation of effective and innovative strategies, research, technology, education, training, and partnership with clients and families.
