Community Gatepath is the largest non-profit group in the county serving people with disabilities, reaching more than 6,700 people. Gatepath is the leading agency providing early intervention services for kids with developmental disabilities. They also offer job placement assistance and help transition disabled people to live independently. As a result, businesses like Safeway, Longs Drugs and Marriott heavily rely on Gatepath to provide people in search of work.
This past year, Gatepath took green steps in its building renovation, installing energy efficient windows and sealants and using low-voltage and timed lighting. Recycling drives help fund pizza parties and social gatherings. Between its awareness to limit their carbon footprint and the indelible efforts to guide disabled people, Gatepath is exemplary in its goals and results.
