I have used Gate for my 1st pregnancy, when I needed help. I didn't have support from my family at first. They were like family for me. Helped me to forget how scared I was to be a parent and they were a great support system and I was able to get diapers and wipes and clothes that I needed. I still go back to visit the ladys in the office and I always attend their yard sales. I definitley support this non profit group. Although I haven't been able to donate financially I have donated my kids clothes and accessories to Gate and I feel great when I do because I know it's going to someone that needs it and that the ladies in the office make sure their resources they receive are used for what they are supposed to be used for.
The resources are top of the line. Everything is beautiful and GATE is well maintained. All the people there are friendly and well trained.
9 years ago there was a vision of a crisis pregnancy center in Harrisburg NC. Our center has grown and we have had to relocate to a larger location to help women in a crisis pregnancy situation. Why is it a crisis? Economic, teen pregnancy, a grandmother that has custody of their grandchild, a single dad, foster parents..many reasons, GATE is a place were we offer help, support, a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on and referrals to other agencies. I started out as a volunteer and now I am the assistant director. We have open hearts to help those in need.
GATE is a loving and caring place for women to come together and find help and information about their pregnancy and/or their baby. A place where they can learn, laugh and share about life as a mom. Anything a new mom would need for her baby (up to one year old) is available to her family. Even though I have only been here a short time, I can see that everyone here has a heart for these ladies and their family.
Gate is a wonderful organization to help mothers who need a place to go for support during their pregancy journey. They will help the mother develop a unique plan to guide them over the next 9 months, and assist with not just the emotional needs of the mom but can provide or find resources for the physical things a new parent may need.
