To provide a caring and stimulating environment where people with intellectual disabilities can achieve their individual goals safely and with dignity.
The Big Idea
Gateway Center will provide tailored and individualized education and support services to adults with various developmental and intellectual disabilities.
As Gateway Center expands support services to offer more personalized choices to each individual, to be known as Tailored Day Program Services, we will upgrade infrastructure and vehicles to accommodate the increase in Tailored Day Program enrollment and community inclusion.
“To my son David, Gateway Center is the place where he lives among friends, enjoying as much independence as he can safely assert. He loves the constant activity of group living, and especially enjoys the staff. Though he enjoys visiting with family, he clearly values the autonomy and respect he finds at Gateway. There’s always something going on! The continued success of Gateway Center is not only vitally important to the residents and staff, but to the families who treasure the quality of life their loved ones would not otherwise enjoy as well. Gateway Center is not an institution warehousing the unfortunate. Gateway Center is a vibrant community that encourages each special resident to be the best that they can be. As a Mom, I value the peace of mind Gateway provides. Now my son’s future is secure with friends, activities, and a rich social life.”
