The Gateway turns 22 today. We haven’t closed our doors once since we opened on February 14th, 2000, and in that time we’ve welcomed more than 10,250 people who’ve experienced homelessness in Toronto.
There’s lots to celebrate, but we also work and pray for a day when homelessness is a thing of the past, and everyone has a safe, affordable place to call home.
The numbers are in from 2021 Santa Shuffle and it was a resounding success once again! THANK YOU to everyone who took part, and ESPECIALLY to our sponsors: @csmortgagecap @fitzroviarealestate & Cover-All Computer Services!! 🥇🥇🥇
We’ve been quiet for a while, but today was a great day at The Gateway and we need to share the wins! A huge thank you to @unityhealthto for organizing and facilitating our on-site vaccination clinic today! A year ago we never would’ve imagined vaccines arriving this soon. We’re feeling incredibly grateful and (somewhat) relieved now that our residents have been able to get their first dose.
Thanks as well to all our supporters and friends out there who’ve been checking in on us. We’re tired, but there’s hope on the horizon and we feel the love! ❤️
A warm welcome to our newest #santashuffle sponsor, @fitzroviarealestate !! Fitzrovia has a great group of staff who are doing their part to fight against poverty and homelessness, and we’re really excited to partner with them. Thanks @fitzroviarealestate for shuffling with us this year and supporting our Drop-in program!
Thanks to everyone who’s shuffled so far! Great seeing your photos and we’re so thankful for your support.
