Gateway-Longview is a not-for-profit child and family service organization in Buffalo, NY that has been providing care, counseling, and support to countless children and families in Western & Central New York since 1890.
Gateway and Longview were founded by faithful parishioners focused on serving orphaned and abandoned children. Gateway was originally known as the Buffalo Deaconess Home of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Longview Niagara was originally named the Protestant Home for Unprotected Children. In 1996, the two organizations merged to become Gateway-Longview.
Over the years, Gateway-Longview’s programs and services have changed to meet the ever changing needs of children and families in our community. Yet, the mission of enriching children’s lives remains the same. Through 17 different programs focused on community services, special education, and residential treatment programs, Gateway-Longview works together with clients, staff and community stakeholders to protect, to give hope, and to enrich the lives of every child and family we serve.
