And Their Reasons For Serving
Gateway is such an amazing organization and doing amazing work, that I am both blessed and humbled to play my small part.
The Gateway model facilitates opportunities for members to live dignified, independent, productive lives, as they participate in their own healing.
Firsthand I saw the symptoms of chronic mental illness; but then I saw Gateway’s Clubhouse Model in action - providing practical purpose and independence.

The Board gives me an opportunity to help some of our most vulnerable citizens by giving them a hand as they begin resuming an active life.
I have never experienced anything even close to the life-changing outcomes the Clubhouse achieves.
I personally experienced the amazing work that Gateway was doing for our community...that was all I needed to serve in any way they needed.
As a former employee, I choose to serve on the board to help in the continued success of the program.
[I serve because] I feel the need to support mental illness awareness to the Community and to the State.
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.
After watching my mother struggle with mental illness my entire life, I realized it is my responsibility to advocate for people battling this disease.
It is exciting to see Gateway’s members grow in self-confidence as they develop skills that allow them to work and live independently.
Gateway's inclusive clubhouse model resonated with me from the start, compelling me to become part of this comprehensive approach,
[I love] working with passionate volunteers and members whose focus is to serve, enhance and improve the quality of life for an underserved population.
Hemingway said ”We are all broken, that's how the light gets in.” Gateway is the light!
Personally, I have experienced depression within my family which led me to want to participate in the organization.
