About the Program: The Gateway to Recovery (GTR) program uses the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) model to empower recovery from within. GTR’s ACT Teams meet members where they are, in the community, and provide intensive, person-centered, and recovery-based services. GTR contains two housing sub-component programs, Project 25 ACT and Chula Vista 7, that offer limited housing subsidies to members who are identified as high-utilizers of mental health services and are at risk of homelessness.
