Our support and emergency services are a direct solution to families who are facing personal crises to include but are not limited to; abandonment, divorce, illness, accidents such as fire, flood, rent increases, or evictions. Our focus is to treat families with dignity and respect and to provide the resident and avenue to self-sufficiency.

"Our mission is to keep families in crises together. We provide shelter and services to homeless men and women, along with their children. Our goal is to offer a stabilizing environment as our residents transition back into the community."

Volunteers help us to extend the work of the Gate House. We've had the honor of working with groups and individuals who have assisted with clerical work, fund raising events, building maintenance, and general activities . Join us today in caring for our homeless neighbors.

The Gate House relies on the Columbia and Montour County communities to support our homeless neighbors. We like to extend our donors to assist in our efforts to improve the lives of people in need. Funds are needed for heat, utilities, building costs, staff services, food, and supplies.
