Families Moving Forward Together, One Step At A Time
Families Forward is a mentorship support group facilitated by Gateway Association, for people caring for a family member with a disability. It provides peer support through monthly meetings, family to family mentorship and provides an online community. Pooling resources, knowledge and experiences between hundreds of families may just be the best place to find all your answers.
Families Forward … on Facebook
This group was created in July 2015 to serve families who would like to interact with one another on social media. As this is a secret group, you must be added by an admin or an existing member. To join, please contact one of our two wonderful admins:
Leanne Utendale: firstname.lastname@example.org
Brenda Davidson: email@example.com
Please note: This is not a group for staff or for those working in the disability field, but rather a safe sharing space only for those with common lived experience.
Gateway Association: Supporting Families in the Community Since 1975
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!
