Concerning the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Update (03/22/2020)

The Gateway Clubhouse facility will remain closed throughout the following week.

 To our Gateway Family and Friends,

Our Clubhouse is strong and amazing!  I trust many of you are following our social media and are witnessing the amazing support of our Clubhouse community.  As we continue to adhere to the suggestions to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Gateway facilities will remain closed through next week.  But this does not mean that Gateway services are not taking place. Again, Gateway will be available to receive calls from our membership during the hours of 8:00 AM through 2:00 PM.  We will continue to provide support to all our members both remotely and through social distancing.

Please continue to check our website and social media as we update our current situation.

The Clubhouse Model

A Community-Based Approach

Gateway is a Clubhouse Model rehabilitation program. This internationally accredited Clubhouse Model provides a restorative environment for adults living with persistent and severe mental illnesses such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.

The individuals at Gateway aren’t patients or clients—they’re members. We help our members lead normal and productive lives by offering opportunities to increase social and vocational skills, build relationships, and obtain education, employment, and housing.

Thanks to Gateway, Elliott Found Hope

“People know my name, my talents, my interests, and what I want to do with my life. The Clubhouse is a place where you can let go of your anger and sadness and people care about you. It is somewhere where you can find friends who are like you. With this kind of community, you can achieve your life goals.”
