The board of directors of Gateway Center of Monterey is in search of a few new members to join our team.

We are happy to consider applicants from relevant backgrounds. A few examples include non-profit, human service fields such as special needs adults, autism, elder-care or social work. In addition, we would be interested in applicants with a strong background in non-profit management, fund development or finance.

We also welcome relatives of individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities. Board members with a loved-one tend to have a sense of the needs of individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities in our care, providing a compelling interest in ensuring that Gateway's future remains strong and bright.

Specifically, applicants need to be certain that they can commit several hours a month of their time to Gateway. We encourage positive, thoughtful, well informed community members to apply, who will be comfortable with the individuals we serve, and able to work in partnership with our executive team and board.

If you are interested in receiving an application packet, please direct your inquiry to Jim Landman, Vice Chair at Or you can call and speak with the Executive Director, Stephanie Lyon, at 831-372-8002 for more information.  

Thank you for your consideration. We hope that you will join us in helping to strengthen Gateway so that it can continue providing top-notch, expert services to the developmentally disabled adults of Monterey County for the next 50 years and beyond.
