Ulster County relies on Gateway to provide help to people with disabilities:


KINGSTON - Ulster County's funding for Gateway Community Industries comprises 20 percent or more of the agency's annual budget and amounts to several million dollars per year, but it is well worth it, County Controller Elliott Auerbach said.  His comments come following an analysis of five organizations that over the past three years have collectively received over $21 million from the county.

Auerbach said Gateway's numerous contracts help hundreds of county residents.  "Gateway's vocational, nutritional and mental health services have played an integral roll in the well-being and stability of individuals and families throughout Ulster." he said.

Gateway leads the top five not-for-profits contracted with the county and received over $6 million since 2014.
