Community Gatepath Names New Center for Niall P. McCarthy
Community Gatepath of Northern California, a non-profit organization that enables children and adults with disabilities to achieve their full potential in health and work, has named its newest facility the Niall P. McCarthy Center for Children and Families. McCarthy, a Gatepath board member since 2002 and chair of the board since 2005-2007, was recognized for his instrumental role in helping the center become a reality. The Burlingame, California-based Gatepath was founded in 1917 and today serves more than 3,200 persons in various programs and services a year. The McCarthy Center focuses on early intervention and preschool services. For example, the newly remodeled center building, among other things, allows Gatepath to expand its children services to include Learning Links, an inclusive preschool where children ages 3 to 5 with and without disabilities learn and thrive together.
