-The Monterey County Gives! team.
At Gateway Center of Monterey County, we serve adults with Developmental Disabilities. We fully support their individual rights and choices, and empower them to live full and productive lives with dignity and independence within the community.
Many adults with developemental disablities, epecially those in wheelchairs, in Monterey County do not have many transportation options to get medical and dental appointments and shopping. There are a limited number of vehicles with handicap ramps available in the community. Gateway Center wants to be part of the solution and do it while having less impact on our environment. Gateway Center is seeking to secure three electric vans to transport current residents and clients as well as other regional center clients. We hope to be the first agency that primary transports adults with developmental disabilities to change its fleet from gas to Electric Transport Vans. Each van will have the ability to transport two wheelchairs. Allowing them to travel within the county to much needed services.
Gateway Center offers a variety of day and residential programs for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Gateway Center compares to nothing I have ever seen for people with disabilities. Since my sister moved in 2 years ago, she has prospered. The staff at GWC treat her with kindness & respect. She calls Gateway, “her family and her home”. The residents love each other like family.The nursing care at the Gateway is outstanding. Each & every single person that works there cares deeply for the clients that live there. The staff is patient with their client’s mood swings and celebratory with each joy they express with accomplishments. The Gateway Center is the “gateway to a wonderful & fulfilling life where people with disabilities get to live their best life. It is my sister's family & mine too.Thank you for giving my sister the best life I could imagine for her!
