Mission Gateway provides a transitional residential treatment program for adults with mental illness who are striving for independence. 

The vision of Gateway is to make recovery a reality for adults with mental illness. Gateway has been a leader in developing public-private partnerships, leveraging public funds with charitable contributions to provide a responsive, efficient, and effective program for individuals without other treatment options. Gateway has grown into a program recognized throughout the state for its innovative and effective services. Our goal is to be responsive to their evolving needs and to focus on helping those most in need of services.  The entire community benefits when individuals are empowered to move from a life of dependency upon others to becoming an independent and productive member of the community. Gateway’s programs are successful, helping over 90% of its service recipients recover.  


Gateway is the only nonprofit organization in Virginia to provide this type of treatment for individuals who have no other treatment options available to them.  We encourage you to donate to Gateway and  support our dedicated efforts and help those in need who, with the proper care and support systems, can achieve a better quality of life. We have many volunteer opportunities as well, so please contact our office if you are interested.




Since 1983, Gateway Homes, Inc. has filled a critical role for Virginians living with mental illness by offering a compassionate alternative to the limited residential and treatment options available. Gateway was originally founded by a group of mental health professionals and  local families who wanted to help their loved ones achieve a better quality of life.  In 1989, Gateway established its current home on a 30-acre campus in rural Chesterfield County. In 2003, Gateway changed its mission from long-term housing to a transitional residential program providing comprehensive, state-of-the-art mental health treatment.  Gateway provides comprehensive mental health care by licensed mental health professionals including a psychiatrist, psychologist, nurse practitioner, counselors and other healthcare providers. This program has distinct components consisting of residential, training and education, supportive employment, and affordable housing services. We help clients in three distinct residential settings. Clients begin their mental health treatment and rehabilitation in a twenty four hour care center, then transition into supervised apartments, develop a plan for community living, and finally move into affordable housing the community.  

CEO Statement
Mental illness is a serious public health concern affecting one out of every four individuals in the United States. Gateway is the only nonprofit organization in Virginia to provide this type of treatment for indigent individuals who have failed in other treatment programs, who are involved in the criminal justice system, and who have no other treatment options available to them. The cost of care in Gateway’s most intensive program is one-third the cost of a state hospital and about one-half the cost of comparable for-profit programs operated in other states. I would like to extend an invitation to anyone who would like to visit our campus and meet some of our residents and see how we are changing the lives of people in need in our community.

Gateway Homes fulfills its mission within three structured residential settings. The first consists of an assisted living facility where staff provides 24-hour supervision. Each consumer is offered healthcare education, individual training and counseling each week. When residents are ready for increased independence, they move to supervised apartments on campus. In these settings residents continue their involvement in healthcare education; they are also provided with individual counseling, vocational rehabilitation, and educational services so they can live more independently, find employment and/or return to school and rejoin the community. In Gateway's third residential setting, individuals graduate to their own housing in the community. Residents continue to receive Gateway's support through psychiatric counseling, transportation to medical/psychiatric appointments, and assistance with employment as needed.
