Reviews for Gateway Community Outreach, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars  

Carlos worked for 21 years as an Aviation professional with the knowledge of most aircraft's from tail to nose.
He was given an incredible opportunity to be a partner in a new startup company, focused on delivering cutting edge aviation products, how exciting this opportunity was for him.
After two years with this company and enjoying his new position, he was presented with news, (that no one wanted to hear) that his managing partners miss - appropriated funds and they were facing a possible shut down by their investors.
During our interview Carlos shared "It's hard sometimes to deal with the emotions that I lost my job at no fault of my own and also hard to grasp that here I stand eight months and 15 interviews later, still left without savings and no income to take care of my family. I thank God, for Gateway Community Outreach, for helping me to pay my rent and feed my family. Because of their ongoing compassion and non - judgmental care in meeting these needs I too wanted to help other understand the gem I have found to help me in such a difficult situation."
"Now, I am not only a client but I am also a volunteer to help others through the same situation I have experienced."
