Our Story

On January 21st, Gateway Longview will begin commemorating 130 years of serving children and families across Western New York. What started as The Buffalo Deaconess Home of the Methodist Episcopal Church, a ministry of parishioners focused on serving orphaned and abandoned children, is now a thriving organization committed to continuing that tradition throughout WNY.


We’re excited to celebrate our 130th year in 2020. As we look back on all that has been accomplished, we want to spend this year sharing highlights from the past and vision for the future.


Buffalo Deaconess Home of the Methodist Episcopal Church is formed.
