The Gatehouse is a faith-based, privately funded community where women and children end cycles of abuse and poverty and discover new paths for permanent change.
We are not a shelter, but we fill the gap between short-term services and permanent self-supportiveness. You can remember us as a place and a program for permanent change.
Single women, or women with children, work through our unique program at their own pace. Their individually-tailored plan empowers them to address and heal from trauma and transition into independence physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially.
Throughout the Program, members pay income-based co-pay fees for resources received. By graduation, members are completely responsible for their living expenses.
Resources are supplied based on need; this includes food, clothes, transportation, medical/dental, childcare, professional counseling, life skills training, education, career development guidance, and financial literacy training.
