The campaign was a success, and in 1993, Gateway opened its doors at its current headquarters on Route 32 in Kingston at One Amy Kay Parkway. The facility was named after past board member Joseph Cornelske, who had overcome his own disabilities. Shortly after, the Gateway Foundation was created to support the organization’s programs, led by Cal Cunningham, the first Foundation Board President.
Since then, the world of serving individuals with disabilities has been in a state of constant change. Our mission remains the same: to provide the skills and supports necessary to the people we serve in order to help them be successful and satisfied with their lives. As we reach our 60th anniversary, we’re proud to have touched thousands of lives with and without disabilities in the Hudson Valley. Only with our partners, supporters, staff, Board of Directors and Foundation Board can we continue to accomplish this.
