Gateway-Longview school is a child and family service organization that has been providing care, counseling, and support to countless children and families since 1890.
Gateway and Longview were founded by the faithful focused on serving orphaned and abandoned children.
Gateway was originally known as the Buffalo Deaconess Home of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
Longview Niagara was originally named the Protestant Home for Unprotected Children.
In 1996, the two organizations merged to become Gateway-Longview.
Over the years, Gateway-Longview's programs and services have changed to meet the ever changing needs of children and families in our community.
Yet the mission of enriching children's lives through high-quality best practice based programs remains the same.

School Reviews

Gateway turned my son around. He went from being below grade level and getting sent home ever day to at grade level and never being sent home. I don''t know where my family would be without this place.

I was in residence at the Williamsville Home for Children from 1929 until 1931. I am forever for being cared there for the first two years of my life. I was thrilled to be remembered by a nurse when I visited in 1948.
