The Family Support team works collaboratively with all of our families to empower them to lead meaningful, independent lives and participate in their communities in the ways they choose.

We do this by working directly and in partnership with other agencies in the community to provide opportunities, education, information and other resources. We are committed and dedicated to providing quality, innovative and personalized supports to families.

If you have a developmentally disabled family member who is eligible for Gateways Community Services services, and that family member lives at home, the individual and their family are eligible for Family Support services.
