The Groden Network (The Cove Center) meets two of the IMPACT Requirements: Individual Responsibility and People.

The mission Groden Network is to support children and adults with autism as well as other disabilities or behavioral challenges. In hopes to help others lead a positive and dignified life, The Groden Network provides educational and rehabilitative services, takes part in research and training, and supports families caring for children with disabilities. Specifically, The Cove Center aims to focus on serving adults over the age of 21 in Rhode Island with a variety of instructional, vocational, and residential programs in order to direct an individual to live their lives as fully as possible.

In 1976, Drs. June and Gerald Groden discovered an absence of effective programs for youth with autism and other challenges. In response to this, they opened the Groden Center. After 40 years, The Groden Network expanded with services that cater to children, teens, and adults who face learning or behavioral difficulties.

The Cove Center provides a plethora of different programs and services for adults to participate in. Made especially for adults with developmental disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, behavioral disorders, intellectual disabilities, etc., Cove commits to supporting growth through experiences without borders or walls. For the community in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, The Cove Center contributes to positive social change and ensures social inclusion beyond their business.
