Happy holidays from Gatehouse women, kids & staff
You loved me with gifts of discipline, accountability and responsibility.  You helped me grow with new habits, advice and big eyes to see more than what  I would ever dare to dream alone. Only God knows the compounding  of future blessings because of your selfless goodwill.


This note from a Gatehouse member is one reason we pause to say thank you for supporting women who have chosen to permanently end cycles of abuse and poverty and reverse the trajectory of their lives for themselves and their kids. Their change is inside and out, and the program is working.

Thank you for collaborating and for caring. We hope that as you enjoy your holiday blessings, you will continue to choose to offer your time, talent and treasure so 182 women and children right now, will have the necessary resources to heal and become self-supportive.

So much is needed. Only as we join together can we make more of a difference than we ever dreamed -- for thousands of families right here where we live.

As we begin this holiday season, we wish you the very best for you and your family. We hope to see you at The Gatehouse, and thank you for remembering our families in your year-end giving.

Have a blessed December!

Christmas with a purpose shopping ideas
Adopt a Gatehouse family in 2018
At any time, we estimate 230 people (85 women and 185 kids) will be supported in 2018. By joining the Adopt a Family Circle, you ensure all families have resources including housing, transportation, child care, food, clothes, legal aid and higher education for permanent success. 

When a woman's basic needs are fulfilled, she is freed to heal, set goals, begin a new career and take care of her children.
