Providing shelter services & critical care for people in need
At Gateway Mission, we understand that no one plans to be homeless or live on the streets. The men and women who come here never imagined they’d be homeless. But homelessness can happen to anyone at any time.
Some are homeless because of the unexpected loss of a job, a home or a loved one. Many are struggling with extreme circumstances like domestic abuse, substance abuse or mental or emotional issues that led to their homelessness.
There are also many misperceptions about homelessness and what
it looks like.
Our Emergency Shelter Programs at Gateway Mission exists to provide assistance to anyone experiencing homelessness and meet their immediate needs such as:
Regular meal service is provided to residential guests staying at Gateway Mission.
Open Door Shelter
Our goal in Open Door Shelter is to provide emergency services and help our guests engage in one of our long-term programs or find stable housing.
Pathway Shelter Program
Our goal in Pathway is to help our homeless guests find a job, stay employed, save money, make positive life changes, and gain permanent housing.
Gateway Mission has separate shelters – one for men and one to help meet the needs of women and children – where we provide a warm, safe, loving environment.
