Emergency Shelter. WE ARE THE LARGEST 24-HOUR EMERGENCY HOUSING ORGANIZATION IN MISSOURI
Emergency Housing and Life Skills
Serving over 100 families and children per day, we are the largest 24-hours emergency shelter for families in the state of Missouri, and the only facility that keeps families together, accepting all members, including teenage boys.
In addition to the basic necessities of food, shelter and clothing, we provide families with the criical tools they need to manage their own homes and prepare for sustainable employment. Our comprehensive Skills 4 Success program includes computer classes, job readiness training, educational service, vocational training, home management skills, health care empowerment, financial literacy and parenting skills.
We also offer an internship program for those who are unemployed so that they learn hands-on job skills right here at the shelter, including cooking, cleaning, front desk management and more.
Gateway180 provides follow-up case management and support services to families in permanent housing through YEHS (Youth Education and Health in Soulard). These units are site-based Section 8, meaning the private landlord receives government subsidies in exchange for providing affordable housing for our low-income families. Each month, the families participate in support group sessions and case management meetings.
Gateway180 works with a wide network of partners and resources to end the cycle of homelessness in St. Louis.
