What is Gateway To Success?
In 2008, the Alhambra Unified School District received a Department of Health and Human Services’ Safe Schools/Healthy Students (SS/HS) grant. This grant allowed for the creation of a collaborative and cohesive infrastructure for providing alcohol and drug, safety, mental health, and early education services to students in the district. Through collaborations with the Alhambra Police Department and other community agencies and partners, Alhambra Unified established a sustainable infrastructure that maximizes resources and utilizes current staff to provide services to all students in the district. The vision of the Gateway to Success initiative is to provide comprehensive prevention and intervention services for the district as a whole, and to overcome many of the obstacles often faced by families who wish to access counseling support by bringing such programs to the school sites.
