Gateways Community Services

2020 Goals:

Gateways Community Services primary role is to support individuals with all types of disabilities and their families. Moving forward, Gateways is committed to addressing our goals effectively and efficiently. We engage in community partnerships to create a seamless treatment and support system. This also helps to coordinate the delivery of innovative services that enhance the integration of medical, behavioral and long-term support, resulting in better health care, improved outcomes and lower costs. Gateways believes in “nothing about us without us.”  Through education and training we will re-invigorate the Greater Nashua education and advocacy network of family mentors for each town we serve to advocate regionally, statewide and federally. This will empower the individuals we support to exercise choice and voice. We continually fine tune our essential services, offering a wider range of options while making them even more user friendly. Here at Gateways Community Services we live our mission every day, truly believing that individuals of all abilities will live the life they choose.

Fundraising Events:

Providing our clients with services that promote independence and ease remain a top priority for Gateways.   We will continue our fundraising efforts in 2020 with a Boots and Bourbon Festival in the fall which will feature whiskey tasting and a mechanical bull. In addition, we will continue to participate in Over the Edge, as well as smaller donor centric events.
