Wonderful Programs for the DisabledAn average day in our facility consists of skill building activities and socialization with peers, staff, and volunteers.
There are many activity options for disabled adults at New Gateways. We offer pet therapy , music therapy with FAR, and physical fitness outings to Oakland Community Health Network and Inclusively Fit. Participants may also enjoy health and beauty services—we provide manicures, hair washing, haircuts (with permission from the participant or guardian), pedicures, and fashion fun. We also provide activities such as group games, movie showings, computer games, arts and crafts, and party planning. Daily community outings are held as well, including trips to shopping malls and local parks, fishing, casinos, art projects, visiting other programs to see old friends, shopping for micro business supplies, bowling, picnics, museums, sporting events, attending seminars where we sell our crafts, and many more community events. We celebrate all holidays! We have a great Diversity Committee consisting of participants and staff that see to it that our rooms and halls are decorated for ALL holidays.
All participants are encouraged to make independent and healthy choices throughout the day. Everyone is given a choice of places to go in the community, accompanied by staff and volunteers. Parents, family members, volunteers, friends, and case managers are encouraged to join in on our daily activities. New Gateways is very fortunate and proud to have a supportive Family Group that meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month.
