Fred and Marian Carpenter, Chairs of the Gateway Capital Campaign, "From Shadows to Light: Building Greenville's Gateway to Dignity and Hope" announced today the total raised was $6,131,015.19. Mr. Carpenter said, "For us to surpass our original goal of $5 million shows the commitment of the Greenville community to serve adults living with mental illness. Our hearts are filled with joy and gratitude." Lt. Gov Pamela Evette and Mayor Knox White both commented on how fortunate Greenville is to have an organization like Gateway in its community. The new 20,000 square foot building was designed by architect firm LS3P and built by Trehel. This new facility will increase Gateway's capacity to accept more individuals who need their services. Joe McLaughlin, Gateway's Board Chair, recognized the founding Gateway directors Phil and Nancy Emory by dedicating the new building in their honor. Gateway is an accredited Clubhouse program serving individuals with serious mental illness since 1984 in Greenville. For more information visit: www.gateway-sc.org
