What: G-FAN is a grassroots advocacy network promoting improved developmental disability services (DDS) and acquired brain disorder (ABD) services through informing government decisions concerning policies and budgeting.

Who: G-FAN is made up of Individuals who receive Gateways’ services along with family members and allies. We unite to stay informed and at times educate state and local government officials/representatives about DDS and ABD services. Our town/ward captains help G-FAN develop local networks, ensure we’re more connected, and keep us more active than we can be with too much of a top-down approach.

Why: G-FAN works to preserve and improve quality DDS and ABD services. Individuals affected by government decisions need to share their expertise and voice their concerns with decision makers.

How: G-FAN facilitates learning about current issues and legislation, encourages discussing concerns with similarly positioned individuals, and helps members take actions to promote beneficial policies.
