Please join us in congratulating Victor Vientos for being the recipient of the Above and Beyond Award for May. This monthly award is a great way for us to recognize and thank staff, students, and volunteers who go above and beyond for the agency, helping to promote and raise needed funds for the program’s growth.

Victor Vientos joined National Grid (Brooklyn Union/KeySpan) in 1982 as part of their Management Trainee Program. Most recently, Victor holds the title as Manager of Community Relations. In this role, he promotes economic development, community relations as well as energy efficiency programs at National Grid.

Victor has been a great friend and advocate for Eden II Programs. He was instrumental in securing a $25,000 Cinderella grant from National Grid for our new school building at 15 Beach Street. In addition, Victor assisted our team in obtaining a $25,000 Hurricane Sandy Recovery grant to help cover the costs to repair damages to our Adult Day Home at 106 Grayson Avenue in OakwoodBeach on Staten Island! When asked about Eden II, Vic shared, “An Angel whispered in my ear about the passion and commitment of Eden II staff….I am blessed to be of this loving community”.

Victor serves on a number of community boards. He is a member of the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce, Staten Island Economic Development Corporation, Staten Island YMCA and the South Shore LDC. His dedication to Eden II and the autism community makes him a very worthy recipient of our May award.

We are so very fortunate to have Victor Vientos as a part of the Eden II family.
