Gateways Community Services

Working together so we can stand on our own

2018 Goals:

Since its inception, Gateways Community Services’ primary role has been to support individuals with all types of disabilities and their families in community life through the use of innovative, leading edge practices. Our strategic direction over the next few years continues this mission, but with even more emphasis on the growth of coordination of care through community partnerships to create a seamless treatment and support systems, and the enhancement of direct care clinical services to fill the gaps in community care. Our focus will continue to be training and supporting families as self-advocates. More innovative practices, personalized services and new technology will support individuals with disabilities and elders in need of long-term care to live meaningful and independent lives in the community.


Fundraising Events:

Here at Gateways, events throughout the year help us continue to provide programs and services that promote growth and independence for individuals with developmental disabilities. Most recently, we took part in the Over the Edge fundraiser where six brave individuals rappelled down a building. The Annual Meeting, held every September, is a time when we come together for an enjoyable evening to celebrate the successes of that year. Other events include, New Hampshire Gives Day and Amazon Smile.


Giving Opportunities:

Donations provide us with essential support. Online donations can be made at gatewayscs.org/donate.htm. You can designate your donation to a specific program or give in honor or in memory of a loved one. Other ways to give include the endowment fund, annual appeal, bequests and via the monthly newsletter. Checks can be made payable to Gateways Community Services and mailed to 144 Canal Street, Nashua, NH 03034.


Volunteer Opportunities:

At Gateways, we know our volunteers play a key role in the success of not only the operation  of our organization, but in the success and accomplishments our individuals achieve in their community. We welcome volunteers to donate their time and talents to help our organization provide supports to the individuals we serve in our community. Over the past decade, volunteers in our organization have become a piece in our woven fabric that makes Gateways Community Services a family. The constant presence of our community members believing in and helping us to implement our vision is exactly what keeps us all reaching for more. Opportunities available: clerical and office support (filing, scanning, data entry, etc.), special bulk mailings, completing consumer surveys, fundraising events, meal preparation and facilitating activities at the Adult Day Service Program, maintenance projects (painting, cleaning, landscaping, etc.) Volunteer eligibility requirements: Must be 18 years of age or older, must complete and pass criminal background check, must complete and pass TB test.
