Long Term Care Services

Long Term Care Services, also known as Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) Services, include personal care, skills training, and active treatment. Our trained staff help with acquisition, retention, or improvement in skills related to activities of daily living, such as personal grooming, household chores, eating and the preparation of food, and skills necessary to enable the individual to live independently.

Working

Employment Services

From working in our campus workshop to attending jobs in the community, there are different employment options to explore with our certified Job Coaches and Employment Consultants.

Gatesway staff are trained and certified to specialize in various employment service needs as Job Coaches and Employment Consultants. Through one-on-one skill building, on-the-job training, and hands-on learning, our friends are able to fulfill their goals of achieving and maintaining community-integrated employment with neighboring businesses and community partners.

 

If you or your business are interested in partnering with Gatesway to provide employment services, please contact Betty Keefover at (918) 259-1479.

Vocational Rehabilitation

Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) services are provided through the Department of Rehabilitation. Our team of Employment Consultants help assess and establish employment for those with disabilities within the community. Making partnerships from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses, our team is dedicated to finding gainful employment that is fulfilling to the individual.

Job Coaching Services

Job Coaching Services, provided through Home and Community-Based Waiver, include enclave, one-on-one, and CIE. Our job coaching staff identify employment opportunities within the community to best match the individual's desire.

Our Job Coaches remain on-site with each individual to ensure fulfillment of required job duties, as well as advocating for natural supports.

Sheltered Workshop

Sheltered Workshop services allow individuals to work and receive training in a controlled environment with many other people with disabilities. Workers are paid in accordance with individual production and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). 

Services include assessment, training and transitional services leading to community job placement if the individual chooses. 

Gatesway subcontracts with external businesses, as well as operates businesses internally to provide work for the sheltered employees. These services are funded through State funds and the Home and Community-Based Services Waivers.

Through Federal and State funding, Gatesway provides crews of three to five workers and an on-site Job Coach for areas such as housekeeping, janitorial services, lawn services, delivery, and paper-shredding (DocLock). Gatesway carries Worker’s Compensation Insurance on each employee in addition to handling timesheets and payroll. Each Gatesway crew is hired, trained, and under the constant supervision of our staff providing an efficient labor force at little more than the cost of one typical employee.

How Can You Help?

Gatesway Foundation is here to support uniquely-abled individuals, as well as serve the community.  Donations, fundraisers, and community projects are essential for the individuals we serve, the campus we maintain, and the community. As a state-funded, non-profit organization, these campaigns are necessary to continue the work Helen Gates envisioned and brought to life over 50 years ago.
