Gatesway Foundation breaks ground on home in Broken Arrow
Gatesway Foundation, a non-profit Oklahoma agency providing specialized services to adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities (I/DD), recently broke ground on its newest community residential home in Broken Arrow.
The new residence will provide safe living for 6 friends, providing individualized bathrooms and bedrooms, remote supports to aid in care monitoring for emergencies, as well as green living for energy efficiency within the community.
Gateway officials said they’re grateful to David Lee of Lee Signature Properties, the FHLBank Topeka - Affordable Housing Program grant through the Federal Home Loan Bank of Topeka — and “generous, private supporters to make this dream into a reality.
“With the help of these organizations, individuals, and the surrounding community, this will be the first of many homes throughout Tulsa County and neighboring counties designed to support friends within the V/DD population.”
Gatesway said its vision and focus on quality housing, quality care and quality of life will be reflected in the home and the new homes that will follow.
