Mission Statement

GATEWAYS and the Foundation jointly operate a 31 acre property better known as the Jesse Dyslin Boys Ranch and dedicated to serve as a community resource and educational center for young people. Now referred to as just the Jesse Dyslin Ranch, the property is home to the social service programs run by GATEWAYS, including foster care placement and support services, an early learning center and a co-parenting education center.    The Ranch is located between 2 growing urban centers, in a fertile suburban greenbelt that is reserved as a rural separator in an area increasingly overcome by development. It is also located at the nexus point of 7 public and private school districts.

The organizational mission of GATEWAYS is shaping young lives and transforming families so they can thrive. Agriculture has historically been integrated into the youth development program and the 85 year old Jessie Dyslin Ranch has always been an agricultural education center. The Farm To Fork Project is a long term plan to renovate the Jessie Dyslin Ranch in a way that will leverage the agricultural nature of the property to meet programmatic goals and reach financial sustainability.

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Working hard to implement the greenhouse pilot program. The greenhouse pilot program is centered exclusively around sustainable green technology, including agricultural and food production technologies, environmental conservation and sustainable community networks, healthy kids and nutrition education and hard job skills in emerging green job markets. It is located on property historically reserved for teaching soft and hard job skills to transitional age youth in the rural separator designated greenbelt of Central Pierce County, Washington. The healthy kids and nutrition program is a two part training that works with the soft skills training objectives. The curriculum is initially introduced to the program participants in a Train the Trainers curriculum, who then teach a community based version of the curriculum to foster parents, foster children and identified at-risk youth in local school districts. As participants advance in skills, they are eligible to become a part of the Train the Trainers teaching team.
