Launched by Dutchess County Executive Marcus J. Molinaro in 2015, the "ThinkDIFFERENTLY" initiative seeks to change the way individuals, businesses, organizations and communities relate to our neighbors with all abilities.

"ThinkDIFFERENTLY" is our call to action, and it has been embraced throughout Dutchess County, New York State and across the nation. More and more people from all walks of life are choosing to focus on the inherent potential of every individual, regardless of ability.

With our website, residents have a resource like no other, offering simple navigation through the comprehensive array of services available — connecting families to resources, events, information, and each other.
