Thank you INGRAM MICRO for Helping to Bring Together
the Carnival Tradition For Families & Friends!

The Lynde School celebrated the end of the summer school session with the annual carnival on our Main Street campus. Families of over 100 students & staff joined volunteers and staff from Ingram Micro for all the fun and activities, which were organized and sponsored completely by the Lynde School Student Council.

Led by a dedicated staff team and enthusiastic student leaders, the Lynde School Student Council works hard all year to provide exciting events for students, as well as therapeutic and recreational programming throughout campus.

The Lynde School Carnival would not be a smooth success without the help of dedicated volunteers from Ingram Micro. Thank you for your tremendous support year after year, from set-up to cleanup and everything in between!

Would you like to extend a helping hand or shape the lives of youth in our community? If your business, community, or church group is interested in volunteering at Gateway-Longview, please contact Jack LePage at (716) 783-3356 or

Bills Camp

Buffalo Bills Welcome Residential Youth to Training Camp

Over the weekend, 11 youth from our residential treatment program excitedly made the trip from our Main Street campus in Williamsville to visit Buffalo Bills Training Camp at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, NY.

After watching morning practice, youth were lucky to snag autographs and photos with the players exiting the field. This once-in-a-lifetime experience will not soon be forgotten by these 11 grateful teens!

One component of our Residential Treatment program is Changing Attitudes & Behaviors (C.A.B.), which supports Western New York youth ages 9-18 who are experiencing significant behavior or emotional challenges. Boys enrolled in our C.A.B. program reside in the Buffalo Bills Ed Block Courage House on the agency’s Main Street campus. Nation-wide, the Ed Block Courage Award Foundation has formulated a National Support Network for Kids through the dedication of Courage Houses in 25 NFL cities. Gateway-Longview is proud to be the designated Buffalo Bills Ed Block Courage House affiliate in Western New York.

If you visit our Main Street campus this fall, you may see some football fans throughout our cottages! Staff members are encouraged to cheer on their team by wearing their favorite jerseys on Sundays.

As a Gateway family, we are committed to providing a warm, friendly work atmosphere, while ensuring that the children we serve feel loved, safe, and valued. To become a part of this inspiring team, visit our Employment page and apply today!
