Our family support team provides support to people who live with disability and their families in times of difficulty. We can assist in the development of strategies, provide information and resources, and make referrals to appropriate supports. Our team is available Monday to Friday to assist in any way we can. For emergencies, please call the appropriate emergency services.
Our family support team is here to help you and your family navigate medical systems, educational systems, and government services. Our team has a broad range of knowledge in a variety of areas, such as: how to apply for funding, how to appeal a decision, and how to work within various systems.
Gateway offers customized presentations for schools, businesses, nonprofit organizations, service providers, and others, on topics such as: building diverse and inclusive communities; disability awareness; the work we do; and the supports we provide.
Gateway’s online Resource Library holds a multitude of resources for people who live with disabilities, their families, and those who provide support. Browse, print, or save any resource you need, including downloadable workbooks. We’re always adding new resources and our website is now completely searchable.
At Gateway, we empower people with disabilities and their families to live full, authentic, meaningful lives. This is the main focus of our workshops for families, staff, professionals, and the community.
Family mentorship is the core of what we do at Gateway. Our organization was founded by families who came together to create change in our community. We continue to draw on the knowledge, support, and experience of families in our day-to-day work, while providing regular opportunities for families to come together.
Each year we support hundreds of families and people who live with disabilities. We have since 1975. It has always been a priority that our services and supports be completely free or largely subsidized. Thank you to the many leaders in our community who have generously offered the donations, gifts in kind, funding, and volunteer hours that make our work possible. We are grateful!
