In addition to finding employment through our organization, we offer various options for residential living, including 24-hour care in our group homes, independent homes, or our ICF facilities.
Gatesway operates group homes and provides 24-hour assistance with basic requirements to individuals living in independent homes and apartments in the community. Other services include assisting friends in selecting staff to work with them, assisting individuals with programs designed to maximize their independence, aiding friends in finding appropriate housing within the community, organizing social activities, and arranging and providing transportation to work, recreational activities, and appointments for individuals.
Residential Services provide 24-hour supervised living arrangements for people with intellectual disabilities. The community home provides support and services to enable our friends to live, work, and participate in recreation in a community setting and develop skills in the areas of self-care, communication, money management, home making, and socialization.
Group Homes Services offer living arrangements for our friends where friends share a single-family home within the community and receive up to 24 hours per day of support and training in daily living skills. Group home residents are 18 years of age or older.
Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) Services include care, skills training, and supervision provided to individuals in their home. Our trained staff help with acquisition, retention, or improvement in skills related to activities of daily living, such as personal grooming and cleanliness, bed making, household chores, eating and the preparation of food, and skills necessary to enable the individual to be more independent.
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.
