We support realistic goals, and work to improve overall well-being and safety for the entire family. We work with families to protect, enrich and give hope.

Approach To Care

At Gateway Longview, we believe that a solution-focused, trauma-informed care approach has the ability to strengthen the knowledge, competencies, skill sets, and engagement as we work with individuals impacted by trauma. We ensure that all services are client driven with access to early screening and comprehensive assessments.
