What Our Clients Say
  • "Gateway to me is not just a place for help with your problems but it is a great organization that helps people find a roof to put over their heads. They have given me much help with comfort and support, by always having an ear waiting that will listen to me. They are always willing to go the extra mile when people need it, and it's a good place to talk without having people judge what you say."
