We provide a safe and dignifying living space for 78 people experiencing homelessness in Toronto. We offer three balanced meals a day while implementing housing-focused case management, laundry service, showers, hygiene supplies, and computer access. We want to see you leave this emergency shelter environment to move into your own place as soon as possible.

New Gateway Drop In

The New Gateway Drop-In (‘NGDI’) is open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 11am-3pm and serves thousands of people every year who need warmth, hot meals, friendship, and safety. Many of our Drop-In Guests already have a place to live and have found that living in this city on a fixed income can be difficult. Accessing the New Gateway Drop-In enables them to stretch their monthly income further to pay their rent. The NGDI is both a community hub and a means of homelessness prevention.

Health Care

Through partnerships with Inner City Health Associates and St. Elizabeth Health Care, The Gateway hosts a doctor on-site one morning a week and hosts a nurse on-site one day every two weeks. Residents and Guests receive the health care they need without judgment in a safe and clean medical environment.

While the doors of The Gateway are always open, it’s important to us that we also serve those who are living outside. The Gateway Outreach Team is on the road seven days a week providing housing-focused case management. Our team has a storied history of caring well for those who choose to live outside.

Our Chaplain is available to serve and support you. While one of their duties is facilitating a weekly Church Service on Wednesday evenings at 7pm, our Chaplain works to foster community in the shelter. They are open to discuss all topics related to your well-being, and are available to meet with Residents, Guests, and Staff. We believe that the spark of the divine is found in everyone.
