Volunteering with Gateway Center

Gateway Center provides volunteer opportunities for individuals, families, groups and corporate volunteers to support us in bringing our vision to life where we live in a community where homelessness is rare, brief, and non-recurring.

Over 5,000 volunteers annually raise their hands and roll up their sleeves to make a difference and help those in our community who are most vulnerable and in need of care, compassion and support. These volunteers provide 16,351 hours of service annually creating an impact of $415,805.93 based on the value of a volunteer hour at $25.43 per hour.
