Meet our Director of Programs Clare Grey
Clare Greys experienced and passion of working alongside individuals with Intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) began as a young child. Her father was a researcher in the health and human services field, where her journey began. From that point forward, Clare has dedicated and focused her energy in being an active advocate for the IDD population. …
Majoring in child psychology, sociology, literature, and language in college allowed her to invest her talents working at Airspace in Bristol, United Kingdom. At Airspace, Clare supported programs that introduced social, recreational activities and therapy for adults diagnosed with IDD living in facilities operated by the country.
After her experience and success in the UK, Clare moved to Boston, MA where she began working with Arc of South Middlesex as a case manager of services. Her passion, hard work and experience allowed her to become Program Manager of services. During her time in this position, Clare was introduced to person centered practices. Implementing person centered practices in all programing and for all participants, Clare experienced first-hand how empowering this method was. Through these practices and during her time as a program manager, all participants were successfully transitioned into community-based settings.
Since then, Clare has been an active advocate and practitioner of person center practices. These practices allow the individuals we serve the right and opportunity to be part of the program planning and service decisions.
Following her success at ARC, she transferred to Southern California and began working as Vice President and Chief Operations Officer for a non-profit organization in South Bay. Some of the services Clare helped develop and managed for this organization included adult day program, supported employment, personal, vocational, and social adjustment service for adults diagnosed with IDD. After her twenty-three-year tenure with this organization, all individuals participating in sheltered workshops were successfully integrated into community-based services. Through her leadership and the hard work of her team, earned the organization full accreditation from the Commission of Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
Clare is now excited be applying her talents and passion as Director of Programs for Peak Performance Training Centers, Inc. (PPTC) and Peak Training Institute (PTI). She has committed to use her experience and knowledge to select and implement services within the guidelines of self-determination and person-centered planning to select the best services for the individuals we serve and their families.
