When asked to think of a local organization that is dedicated to helping people, one name immediately came to mind – The Arc Gateway. The Arc Gateway’s purpose is to provide the best possible life experiences for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Since 1954, Arc Gateway has provided life-enhancing programs that help the people they serve realize their dreams, without regard for race, creed, color, sex or any other attribute. They see ABILITY not the disability.
