Gateway Longview Awarded Grant As Part Of WNY COVID-19 Community Response Fund

Gateway Longview is grateful to be included as one of the organizations support by Phase 2 funding from The WNY COVID-19 Community Response Fund.

As a designated provider of essential services by New York State, funding will help support the critical needs of the youth and families served by Gateway Longview during the time of social distancing due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. It is more important than ever that critically needed and mandated services with our youth and families continue to operate under these challenging times utilizing technology upgrades to support tele-communication capacity for youth and families, to support family-based placements, family connection, family reunification, continued education, distance learning for students unable to attend regular classes and whose families do not have access to the necessary technology, tele-therapy for mandated related services including speech, occupational therapy, physical therapy, counseling and parent counseling and training.

Gateway Longview leadership and staff are working under extreme circumstances in these challenging times in an effort to support the youth and families served and continue the agency’s mission to protect, enrich and give hope.

COVID-19 Pandemic and the mandated work from home and social distancing has put a tremendous stress financially on the agency having to quickly without notice change the way the agency operates to continue to serve our community to continue care while keeping youth and families safe.
