The Gateway Center
The Gateway Center works to end homelessness, and particularly chronic homelessness, by providing the support and framework people need to achieve self-sufficiency. Through therapeutic programs and services, the Gateway helps homeless individuals in metro Atlanta move into transitional and permanent housing.
The Gateway Center philosophy rests on the guiding principle that homeless individuals can ultimately achieve permanent housing through their own dedicated efforts combined with a collaborative process built on a foundation of support from a skilled staff, intensive case management, and trained volunteers.
The homeless individuals at the Gateway Center must commit to programs designed to meet their individual needs – such as mental health support, substance abuse counseling, sustaining employment, or job-readiness and training. They are required to set goals and demonstrate progress towards those goals in order to remain at the Gateway.
The core mission of the Gateway Center is to provide a supportive and compassionate setting where individuals can receive the tools, programs, and services they need to end their homelessness.
