Gateway is right there each step of the way to keep your dignity in a season of Finacial distress
Thirteen years ago my husband's work truck was broken into and of all of his tools was stolen. At the time he was a self contractor and he was the sole provider for my two girls and I. He could not work without his tools so we fell behind in the rent. Gateway Community Outreach assisted our family with rent assistance and prevented us from becoming homeless. Gateway also assisted our family with food. I liked Gateway so much I started to work part time for them and now I have been working with Gateway for twelve years. I am very thankful that through Foundations and individuals donations Gateway is able to help more families like mine.
My aunt came from Haiti and we needed help with food for her and her husband, I called Gateway Community Outreach, they send us to a nearby pantry; needless to say they went out of their way to help her with food, and bus pass. When she came out side, she was ecstatic because someone treated her as if she was their mother and not like a burden to society. Impressed with her treatment, I went back inside and thanked the ladies of First Baptist.
It’s not every day you see people going out of their way to help the elderly, I hope to see more community services, with the heart of Gateway's volunteers, workers and staff.
I sincerely thank you for making my aunty feel the love. God bless!
Thank you Gateway for helping me to reconnect with the community. Your integrity, compassion and love for those in need have surpassed so many organizations I am familiar with. You are the real deal.
As I observe your interaction with your clients, I am reminded of the compass of Jesus.
Thank you for all you do, and I pray that you will continue to do a great job meeting the needs of the community.
Recently had the privilege of learning about and working with Community Outreach. I was amazed at what little I knew and understood about this amazing charity. I will give and serve and praise this company as they have proved themselves to be faithful to poor, helpless and needy... Of which I need them the most for their ability to restore my faith in many.
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."
