What Our Clients Say
  • "I was all alone with mental illness for years. No doctor would help. I was very insecure when I first called Gateway. I needed a place to live and the group home let me in. I learned how to budget, how to be independent, and even was given the courage to go back to school. The counselling I have had is very good, I now know that I am not alone. The women's group is very therapeutic... I feel safer."
