Description: Not Just a Bed and a Meal... A Chance for a New Beginning.
Our Gateway Center (emergency shelter) is the most basic of our programs and is often the entry-point into our long-term programs. Emergency Shelter receives clients - literally - off the street, who have exhausted all support and typically have multiple and long-term problems.

The Mission provides 48 beds for homeless men; the shelter is open 5:20 p.m. to 8:00 a.m.

There is a 14-day limit; shelter use is not an answer to homelessness, but a first step to self-sufficiency.

The men are encouraged to join a long-term recovery program to resolve the root causes of their homelessness so they can end it permanently. They can join one of our long-term programs or be referred to another agency if needed.

Free services include nutritious meals, personal care items, beds, clothing, shower facilities, and chapel services.
