Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

In the Richmond area, seriously mentally ill adults who leave acute or long-term care facilities without establishing adequate support and housing are at high risk for becoming homeless or for ending up in the criminal justice system. They also consistently have the worst employment outcomes among all disability groups in federal and state vocational programs. The literature and Gateway’s experience, however, suggests that competitive employment or volunteer work is a primary goal for approximately 70 to 75 percent of such individuals. Many individuals with significant histories of mental illness have experienced exposure to the criminal justice system. This is a barrier to housing even when the individual is successfully controlling the mental illness, is employed, and has gained the necessary skills to live independently. The results of required background checks for housing may become a rule-out for some apartment complexes that are otherwise affordable choices for the individual.

Gateway Homes

At Gateway Homes we are driven by the belief that people with sever mental illnesses are capable of leading fulfilling lives. Few sources of effective, affordable treatment are available to these, our neighbors. But Gateway Homes has a proven record of helping people with even the worst forms of mental illness to recover, return to school and work, maximize their quality of life beyond a psychiatric setting and achieve their goals of independent living.

Each resident has an individualized service plan which includes person-centered goals for living as independently as possible in a community setting of his or her choice. Residents receive education assistance in understanding the role of medication, in maintaining psychiatric stability and adhering to medication regimes from a nurse and staff certified in medication administration. Recovery Support Specialist help individuals on a one-to-one basis develop skills for independent living such as daily self care, food preparation, cleaning, budgeting , managing leisure time, safety skills. The Occupational Therapist helps with pursuing volunteer and employment opportunities. A staff psychiatrist and nurse practitioner meets with each individual for medication and review on an ongoing basis. Gateway provides these services until no longer needed.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Organizational Goals
1. Maintain clients’ psychiatric stability
2. Help clients avoid costly hospitalizations through the provision of psychiatric, nursing, and counseling services
3. Help clients become employable or prepared for a volunteer position
4. Help clients both obtain and maintain affordable housing

Gateway provides comprehensive mental health care by licensed mental health professionals including a psychiatrist, psychologist, nurse practitioner, mental health clinicians, and other healthcare providers. We also provide prevocational services teach individuals the necessary skills that help them become successfully employed. When the residents graduate to independent living in the community, Gateway continues to provide the transitional support they need to adjust to independent living in a community setting, continue their academic pursuits, and seek and maintain their employment. After a period of adjustment to community life, Gateway helps individuals connect with resources in the community needed to sustain their long-term goals of recovery and independence.

Gateway is the only nonprofit organization in Virginia to provide this type of treatment for indigent individuals who may have failed in other treatment programs, who have no other treatment options available to them.

Without Gateway, many individuals with serious mental illness would remain in the hospital or jail or be at significant risk of homelessness. The cost of treatment in Gateway's most resource-intensive program is less than 1/3 the cost of comparable programs in other states, 1/4 the cost in a state hospital, and 1/8 the cost of private psychiatric hospitalization.

Gateway provides psychiatric, nursing, occupational therapy, and counseling services. We also help individuals, who are stable enough in treatment, to engage in school, work, and volunteering opportunities.

We also provide transportation, facilitating individuals, both on- and off-campus to be as independent as possible. Most of our service population is unable to drive because of medication side effects.

Gateway has helped individuals with serious mental illness recover, return to work and school, and move into housing in the community. These achievements were made possible through counseling, skills training, and educational services focused on four key areas: (1) continuation of psychiatric stability, (2) maintaining housing, (3) sustaining employment, and (4) displaying law-abiding conduct. Through the provision of psychiatric, nursing, and counseling services, residents are able to continue their psychiatric stability and avoid costly and disruptive psychiatric hospitalizations. In-home skills training helps to ensure residents maintain their affordable housing and meet the landlord's standards. Supportive employment services result in residents wanting to sustain employment.

Gateway’s model is so successful that we have been asked to replicate it in health districts throughout Virginia, including Fairfax, Hampton Roads, Southwest Virginia, and Charlottesville.
