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.
