Mission Statement

To create a new model of community development inspired by core values of the Buddhist tradition: commitment to a path of personal growth, development of wisdom and compassion, and celebration of the wholeness and interdependence of all life. To heal and enlighten our society by: empowering ourselves and others to lead self-sufficient and productive lives, working with the rejected parts of society including the rejected parts in ourselves, and creating and stewarding healthy institutions which in their very nature are catalysts for individual and community transformation.

Description

The Greyston Mandala of businesses and non-profits has a twenty-year record of service in southern Westchester County (mandala is a Buddhist word meaning "circle"). From its beginnings as a small neighborhood bakery in 1982, Greyston has grown into a comprehensive, integrated organization providing jobs, training, housing, childcare, social services, and health services. Our commitment to community development and personal growth is rooted in a spiritual vocation that seeks not just to relieve human suffering but to create a healthy, vibrant, diverse community that supports the life paths of all its members. The Greyston community employs and serves nearly 1,000 men, women and children. The quality, scope, and effectiveness of Greyston's work is recognized and supported at the City, County, State, and Federal levels.
