Many families are one pay check away from experiencing homelessness. It only takes the lost of a job, an injury, prolonged illness, unexpected expenses or a fire, to create an economic downturn for a family barely “getting by.” Most families experiencing these circumstances, within a few months, will experience hunger, an eviction or foreclosure family is torn apart and they are at risk of being homeless.
Gateway Community Outreach steps in to provide the assistance needed, to prevent homelessness and restore self-sufficiency.
