Welcome to Gateway !

About Us 

Nearly 25 years ago, Gateway (GCC) was founded on the principle that all individuals — including those with intellectual and developmental disabilities — deserve to live happy, productive, independent lives.

Since we first opened our doors, we’ve served more than a thousand clients by pioneering innovative programs that speak to them not only as individuals, but as shareholders in the larger community around them.

All of our groups — from a wide range of Areas of Interest — are designed for people across the entire spectrum of disability. We pride ourselves on our caring, committed staff — from our dedicated MSCs to our incredibly talented guest lecturers to our conscientious facilities-management team.

Gateway programs run 365 days a year, 7 days a week, from early morning on into the evening hours, and we serve the Bronx, Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn. Our facilities are regulated under the auspices of the New York State Office for Persons with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) and the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH). We would be happy to give you a tour and answer any questions you may have. To schedule a tour, please contact Ross Stephens at (718) 325-5021 or send an email to  intake@gccnyc.org.  

In the meantime, we invite you to browse our website, where you can learn more about our programming, our staff, and our eligibility and admissions process. We look forward to meeting you soon, and to welcoming you into the Gateway family.
