Green Mountain Support Services Board Member

Green Mountain Support Services

Overview of Organization

Green Mountain Support Services was originally incorporated as Sterling Area Services in 1986. We were founded as a Specialized Service Agency to provide an alternative for individuals seeking developmental services. Our recognized specialty was helping individuals who experience challenging behaviors to more effectively communicate their needs so that they can live their best lives. While our services have expanded over the years, this remains a core strength. Today, we are designated by the Department of Aging and Independent Living to provide care in several programs including:

Developmental Services
Choices for Care – Adult Family Care
Brain Injury

We believe all people have the right to direct their own lives and that our job is to meet people where they are and find out, from them, how we can best support them to attain their goals. If you choose to receive services from GMSS, you will have a team of dedicated professionals that works together to provide the supports you need and want.

Mission Area: Mental/Behavioral Health and Crisis Intervention
