The news of a caring community

Supporting individuals as they strive to achieve a hopeful, satisfying, active, and contributing life.


Dedicating February to Opiate Abuse and Addiction Education 

Gateway is continuing to focus our agency quality initiative on opiate abuse and addiction during the month of February through online videos about how opiates change the brain, statistics of overdose and addiction, real-life stories of addiction and recovery, and Narcan training with the Ulster County Sheriff ORACLE (Opioid Response as County Law Enforcement). This is a vital part of making sure we are prepared in an emergency situation. 


Will you be in it to win it this year?

We hope you'll join us on Friday, March 24th for our 25th Annual Foundation Raffle. Remember only 350 tickets are sold, and you need not be present to win up to $10,000, but why miss out on the fun, food, and opportunities to win other great prizes! 

We are also looking for gift card and gift basket donations from local businesses, along with sponsors. We'd love to feature your business!


What is SPOA? How can it help you or someone you care about? 

The Ulster County Department of Mental Health (UCDMH) is designated under NYS Mental Hygiene Law as the Local Governmental Unit (LGU). The LGU has a role in overseeing publicly funded services for people with mental health, substance use disorder and developmental disabilities within Ulster County’s behavioral health system. 
Single Point of Access (SPOA) is a New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH) initiative that facilitates timely access and linkage to care management and other supportive services for adults, youth, and families. SPOA services are designed to promote recovery and are personally tailored and responsive to individual needs and preferences. 
In Ulster County, we have specialized coordinators responsible for overseeing Adult, Child & Family and Residential Services. Each coordinator oversees their own SPOA committee to ensure our residents are able to connect with any service available to them in our system of care. To access our applications, please visit:
