And Their Reasons For Serving
"Our family has greatly benefited from the Gateway program and are excited to share in making that happen for others."
As a former employee, I choose to serve on the board to help in the continued success of the program.
Gateway House represents to me what is good in our community and serving on the board is both a great honor and opportunity to be a part of something special.
"As a healthcare professional and passionate advocate for those living with mental illness, I am in awe of the amazing achievements of Gateway in helping members live their best lives."
Welcome to the Gateway Board of Directors!
I have never experienced anything even close to the life-changing outcomes the Clubhouse achieves.
After witnessing firsthand how Gateway ensures that members are "seen, heard and valued", I am honored to be part of this wonderful community. Gateway truly changes lives.
"What Gateway does, and does so well, is incredibly important for the community and people in need. I am honored to be able to play a small part."

I serve on the board to help individuals have healthy and productive lives.
After watching my mother struggle with mental illness my entire life, I realized it is my responsibility to advocate for people battling this disease.
I became a board member to better understand what a member of my family is going through!
I also enjoy giving back. God has richly blessed my family and I. I just want to be an instrument to share his love by helping others.
I've seen the incredible impact that Gateway has on the lives of its members and I am excited to help the program continue to grow and serve the needs of our community.
Firsthand I saw the symptoms of chronic mental illness; but then I saw Gateway’s Clubhouse Model in action - providing practical purpose and independence.
[I love] working with passionate volunteers and members whose focus is to serve, enhance and improve the quality of life for an underserved population.

Personally, I have experienced depression within my family which led me to want to participate in the organization.
