Beginning at 12:00 noon on Monday, June 17, Gateway Mission is offering emergency cooling centers. The Gateway Men’s Center and the Gateway Women and Children’s Center will be open for unsheltered families and individuals. Due to the expected ongoing heat, its anticipated cooling centers will continue throughout the week. If you or someone you know is in need of a cool shelter, please direct them to Gateway Mission.

Gateway Mission will offer Emergency Cooling Centers from 8 AM – 8 PM beginning June 17, at 12:00 PM.

Gateway Men’s Center: 166 S River Ave, Holland MI 49423

Gateway Women and Children’s Center: 356 Fairbanks Ave, Holland MI 49423

In addition, anyone in need of overnight emergency shelter is encouraged to check in and remain at Gateway Mission through these dangerous conditions.

We are thankful for our highly trained team who is ready 24/7 to provide safe/cool shelter, showers, food and water to men, women, and children who come to us in need.

From one of our moms who came into Open Door and then moved to Pathway. She is an example of how this works if our guests are all in and want our help. She just moved into an apartment with her three children! Praise God!

“I want to personally thank you all for what you have done for me and my kids. Each and everyone of you ladies hold a special place in my heart. You all have gone above and beyond for all of us! You all go through so much in a day with all the women at the shelter, but you do it with a smile. 😊 I’m so thankful you all accepted my son’s hugs. He changed so much in childcare that he learned to love everyone and to give hugs. His favorite thing to say is “Jesus died for my sins!” Learning that in childcare was such a bittersweet feeling! My other two children are going to miss you too. They pretend to be the resident staff LOL. I know they will very much be interested in what we could do to still be a part of the shelter to help. I’m going to figure that out.

I wrote this so you all know how much I appreciate you all and how much love we want to show you all! Thank you for everything.

Happy Mother`s Day from us at Gateway Mission!

Today we pray for the Mothers at our Women`s Center and in our Forge and Thrive Programs. We give thanks for their desire to change not only their future, but their children`s future by God`s grace!

Although this day can be difficult for many – those who have lost mothers, for those who have lost children, and for those who desire to be mothers, we give thanks to God for his overwhelming faithfulness! 💜

Psalm 139:13-14: "For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother`s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well."

For you are my lamp, O Lord, and my God lightens my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop, and by my God I can leap over a wall. This God—his way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; He is a shield for all those who take refuge in Him. 2 Samuel 22:29-31

There isn`t enough space to capture the impact and lives changed through our volunteers at Gateway Mission. This week during National Volunteer Appreciation Week, we reflect and acknowledge the instrumental work that our volunteers are a part of.

Whether you have volunteered one hour or one thousand hours with Gateway Mission, you have been a part of hearts healed and hope restored. With abundant hearts we say, THANK YOU!

Colossians 3:23-24: Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

April is National Volunteer Month! We truly would not be able to do what we do without our faithful and generous volunteers. Last year volunteers provided over 21,000 volunteer hours. That is equivalent to 10 full time employees! Praise God for our volunteers! We are grateful for each and every one of you! #gatewaymission #volunteer #appreciation #hopefoundhere

“Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.” (Romans 10:9-10)

During morning devotions this morning at the Gateway Women and Children’s Center, staff read the story of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. 14 women and 2 teenagers heard the good news from the book of Matthew.

Our guests were very attentive to hearing the Easter story. It was a reminder of why we do what we do even when times are hard at the shelter. Our staff are committed to spreading the good news of the gospel to everyone who comes to the Gateway Women and Children’s Center.
—Jodi, Women’s Director
