Back To Top



Clients begin their mental health treatment and rehabilitation in a twenty four hour care center, then transition into supervised apartments, develop a plan for community living, and finally move into affordable housing in the community. Gateway provides comprehensive mental health care by licensed mental health professionals including a psychiatrist, psychologist, nurse practitioner, counselors, and other healthcare providers. When they graduate to independent living in the community, Gateway continues to provide residents with any transitional support they need to adjust to independent living in a community setting, continue their academic pursuits, and maintain their employment. After a period of satisfactory adjustment to community life, Gateway helps individuals to connect with the resources and supports in the community needed to sustain their long-term goals of recovery and independence. Our goal is to partner with community organizations to meet the critical needs of the most underserved individuals with mental illness.
