At our annual Awards Day luncheon, Opengate also celebrated our 50th Anniversary with our staff, residents and their families. Each of our individuals was presented a certificate for their achievements.
Everyone enjoyed gathering together for a beautiful meal, music, dancing, and sharing memories of the last 50 years along with individual achievements.
It a pleasure to revisit and reflect on the past, to measure where we are today, and to plan for where we are directed for the future.
Chief Operating Officer, Deborah Mayo says, “It will just get better and better with more beautiful community homes, dedicated staff members, and resources. It will be an incredible journey.”
For the next 50 years Opengate promises further positive change and we are encouraged that we can count on our families to again forge through transformation by providing assistance.
It’s only with your support that we can ensure a brighter future for all we serve.
With the programs and services we have developed over 50 years, we are now able to see practical and productive improvements on a daily basis.
For all of us at Opengate, this is a sign of our success.
Our history is rich from the beginning when a handful of devoted parents came together with the collective vision to establish a place where their adult children could live, learn new skills, and become active in the community.
“It will be a home away from home where our children can live a useful life long after we are gone.”
