Safe, reliable childcare for mothers involved
in Gateway Mission’s Programs
Recognizing that lack of childcare is a significant barrier to moving forward for mothers with children, we offer childcare to participants in our Pathway and Gateway programs. Without childcare they often cannot get the help they need to overcome life’s challenges.
Gateway Childcare was created to be a service to moms with children living in our shelter. We are a state-licensed childcare facility accepting children birth-12 years housed at Gateway Mission. Our mission is to provide children a loving, quality, learning environment that shows them the love of Christ. We are passionate about teaching each child not only the curriculum but about God’s plan for their life and how to love one another as God loves us.
