Gateway to Learning, a 501 © 3 organization located in Lincoln Square, provides lifelong learning for adults with intellectual challenges and developmental disabilities that promotes active inclusion at home, at work, and in the community. As part of our education programs, we operate our Dorothy’s Sweet Shoppe where adults receive workforce training and employment opportunities.
In 2020 we partnered with Half Acre Brewery to launch a brand new pet product! Coined Barley’s Biscuits, our dog treats are made with 4 simple ingredients: Peanut Butter, Eggs, Flour, and Spent Grain. We even package the biscuits in a beer can so you can “Enjoy a Brew With your Pup.”
On April 24th we are hosting our first annual Barley’s Biscuits Wag n’ Walk. Aimed at spreading the word on our latest products and programs, all proceeds from this walk directly support the programs at Gateway to Learning.
