The agency was originally founded to support the individual with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities to develop and express their unique potential. Through its residential and day services, Opengate assists individuals in making informed choices that enhance their lives. We do this through person-centered planning, therapeutic and specialized clinical services and individualized programming.
Opengate has been designated as an emerging Compass Agency by New York State. The Compass process involves an ongoing collaborative effort with service recipients, board members, management, and staff working together in a person-centered environment with the goal of promoting and achieving valued outcomes for the people served.
