The Gatehouse, our crisis shelter, aims to act as the first step on the path out of homelessness. The service has 10 beds and provides warm and welcoming space for people who come to our door, some of whom will have spent some time on the street. Residents are provide with food, a warm bed and a safe place to stay and fresh clothing or shoes if needed.
Once they are in our shelter, individuals have a guaranteed bed for up to three months as long as they are working on their plan for the future and meeting the expectations set out for all Gatehouse residents. The teams working at The Gatehouse aim to built up trust and respect with the residents in the hopes of helping them on the path out of homelessness.
