Gateway Longview is grateful to be included again as one of the organizations supported with funding from The WNY COVID-19 Community Response Fund 2021.
(Gateway Longview also received funds in 2020)
As a designated provider of essential services by New York State, funding will help continue to 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 continue to work 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 put a tremendous stress financially on the agency having to quickly without notice change the way the agency operated to continue to serve our community to continue care while keeping youth and families safe.
Thank you to all of the organizations and individuals contributing to the WNY COVID-19 Community Response Fund for selecting Gateway Longview as one of the recipients of this important funding.
