The GRS Advisory Council

The GRS Advisory Council was developed as a result of the Board of Director’s desire to include people served in the management of Gaston Residential Services. The Advisory Council reports to the Board of Directors.

The GRS Advisory Council’s organizational meeting occurred in February, 2009. Since then, the group has consistently met twice a month.

Council members have been active collaborators in GRS Quality Assurance and Quality Improvement projects, assisted in providing the City of Gastonia with a report on city curb cuts needing repair, participated in GRS Safety and Accessibility Committees, and educated themselves and all persons served about rights, about politics, and about employment for people with disabilities.

Anyone who receives services from GRS is welcome to join the Advisory Council.
