Gateway Association is an organization that works with individuals who have developmental disabilities as well as their families. Gateway was incorporated in 1975 by a group of parents. The original focus of the group was exploring education alternatives for their children. When the parents gathered they found that they had something else to give to each other: shared common experience.
Gateway envisions a community where all children grow within a family; all children learn together in neighborhood schools; all adults work at real jobs in the community; all adults will have a real home and real friends; and all people are valued, contributing members of their communities.
Gateway is a family resource centre that provides education, family support and mentorship. It is our mission to assist the community to understand intellectual disabilities.
