Emergency Shelter

We believe that everyone should be able to be safe when they sleep at night. Life on the streets means not knowing where your next meal may come from or how you will get out of the elements to find safe, dry shelter. The Gateway of Hope was created to provide people life’s basic necessities. It is the core of what the Salvation Army does. Our Emergency Shelter can house up to 22 men and eight women and ensures that people living on the streets have somewhere safe to spend the night when they need to.

Family Services

The Gateway of Hope Family Services is blessed to offer year round programs that help individuals with emergency clothing, food and housewares.  At Christmas we assist with hampers to give people a wonderful Christmas with enough food to take them through the season.
Each year we partner with local businesses and the community to collect and distribute basic school supplies and backpacks to give them the head start they need in school
We are also able to offer subsidized summer camp for children ages 7-12 years, Family Tracing Services and assistance to those who find themselves homeless.
Our Family Services Coordinator takes the time to meet with clients, listen to their needs and assist or refer them to other community resources if needed.

Opportunities Program

Through our Opportunities Program we provide the next steps for those in the recovery process from drug and alcohol addictions – endeavouring the journey of a new life . The Gateway of Hope provides supported transitional housing for both men and women. The Gateway of Hope staff work closely with the residents of the program to break the cycle of addiction while identifying the barriers of destructive behaviour. The Opportunities Program provides residents with life and employment skills, goal setting and relationship counselling.
The Opportunities Program unique element is through the connections formed with the residents and their Opportunity Advisors. Each Advisor works one-on-one with a resident standing by their side through each life changing steps. Advisors are able to identify areas that are in need of growth and can assist in developing realistic goals.
