The Gonzales Way
The Gonzales Way is the way we raise happy, healthy, successful children.
It comes down to: Love, Care, and Connect.
The Gonzales Way that began as the framework for an initiative and has developed into how we live in Gonzales, began with the Gonzales Youth 21st Century Success Initiative: A Cradle to Career Government, Education, Community & Workforce Partnership. With this initiative, Gonzales and its partners set the stage to continue to provide the setting to allow children to grow up in Gonzales with Love, Care, and Connection.
