Many families are one paycheck away from experiencing homelessness. It only takes the loss 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 go through hunger, experience an eviction or foreclosure and are at risk of being homeless.
Gateway Community Outreach steps in to provide the assistance needed, to prevent homelessness and restore self-sufficiency.
Researchers from the University of Oregon investigated the audience of real money slots online and casinos, remarkably, but in the course of the study, the scientists concluded that the stereotypes in society are incorrectly constructed. Project leader Sandy Chen believes that players can be divided into four groups:
1. The first group is players who play just for fun, they don’t aim to “make a mess”, they just enjoy the game. According to their data, they are wealthy people with considerable wealth who are looking for new adventures and sensations.
2. The second group are players who avoid jackpots and slot machines with high payouts. According to scientists, they behave this way because they enjoy playing with the fact of winning, regardless of the amount. Slots with jackpots and big payouts give winning combinations less often.
The third group is the players who enjoy both the game and the winnings. As observations have shown, they choose completely different slots with different winnings and stories. Scientists believe that these players are willing to prefer new slots even good winnings, it is important for them to feel the game and enjoy it.
4. The fourth group is the players who want to just distract themselves. According to some reports, these people are those who are subject to stress and negative emotions throughout the working day, and playing slot machines, they thus relieve the nervous tension accumulated during the day. Most often, players in this group do not like to play alone, they prefer to play with friends and acquaintances.
As we can see, a very common view that the slot machines are played by people with income below average in order to get easy money, not confirmed. Also a very unexpected discovery was that the slots are chosen mainly by women (up to 60% of the audience) aged 55-60 years, who earn more than 55,000 dollars.
Casino – the best online casino today, experts came to this conclusion after conducting a survey of casino players on the Internet. Players note not only the abundance of new and favorite slots, as well as high quality graphics, a high percentage of winnings and a large number of additional bonuses and incentives from casinos. Join the gamblers, play and win!

To the Gateway Family, I just want to thank you for being there for my son and me. I was able to cry and be comforted in a safe space. God led me to your amazing organization. Special thanks to Keith and Danielle for pulling every stop to make sure my rent got paid in time. I will be eternally grateful to you all. I will not forget your kindness when I get back on my feet. God Bless you all!
I would like to deeply thank you for the amazing work you do for us in the community. Your help and kind service has been a huge help to me and my daughter. Thank you very much.
It is with my deepest gratitude that I offer thanks to your organization for helping me in my time of need. Through Gateway’s rental assistance program, I was able to resolve my past due balance. I fell behind due to hardship in the COVID 19 crisis, as I was laid off due to the pandemic. It is my hope that I can one day pay it forward and donate to your fine cause. As a college graduate with a keen interest in community service and development, I truly appreciate the efforts put forth by Gateway within the communities of Broward County. As a young adult Christian, it is inspiring to see goodwill charity, in the name of the Lord Jesus...
I would like to thank Gateway Outreach Community for their support in rental assistance. I've experienced financial hardship since the loss of my husband and delayed income during this pandemic. I am so grateful that Denise and Gateway were able to answer my earnest needs. God bless them in all that they do. Thank you.
I am so thankful for the Gateway Community Outreach Organization. I endured challenges with my employment due to the pandemic, which caused me undue stress trying to figure out how I was going to pay my rent and keep a roof over my two little ones. I am so thankful for this organization that provided assistance in a timely fashion. Denise was very understanding and helpful in such an extreme manner. It is so awesome they are able to assist in a crisis. Words can't express my sincere gratitude.
