Gateway Children’s Services Awarded $420,000 Grant from Federal Home Loan Bank-Cincinnati.

Gateway Children’s Services recently announced they received a grant from Federal Home Loan Bank-Cincinnati (FHLB) in the amount of $420,000 to purchase the Adrian Arnold Building at 37 N. Maysville St, which serves as their primary location.  Gateway Children’s Services CEO Joe Gomes said the vision to purchase the building came about as a result of their board of directors and staff strategic planning process two years ago. Gomes stated, “as we started looking towards the future changes in the child welfare system, we wanted to ensure that we had sufficient funding to continue strengthening our current programs such as Residential Treatment Services, Therapeutic Foster Care, Adoption Services and Outpatient Behavioral Health Counseling.”  Gomes added, “by purchasing the facility and utilizing the FHLB grant as partial payment on the building, we are able to reduce our overhead expenses and reinvest this savings in expanding programs that provide services to Kentucky’s vulnerable children, youth and families.”

Gomes said they worked with several community partners to realize not only the purchase of the building, but to obtain grant funding as well.  “We initially approached Daren Turner, former owner of the building, and communicated our vision for the future of our organization.  Mr. Turner completely supported our plan and agreed to sell us the building.  We then began looking for funding options and applied for grant funding with FHLB-Cincinnati.”  Gomes explained that FHLB grants are very competitive, and the entire process took approximately 18 months.  Gomes added,” We are also very appreciative of the support and guidance we received from Traditional Bank, who served as our partner bank in this endeavor.”
