Gateway Community Outreach: A Hand Up, Not a Handout
August 10, 2019
Doing a Little Can Help A Lot!
Many families are one paycheck away from experiencing homelessness. It only takes the loss of a job, an injury, prolonged illness, unexpected expenses, or a fire to create an economic downturn for a family barely “getting by.”
Within a few months, most families in these circumstances will experience hunger, and an eviction or foreclosure, as well as potentially fall at risk of becoming homeless.
Gateway Community Outreach steps in to provide the assistance needed, to prevent homelessness and restore self-sufficiency.
Gateway Community Outreach has been providing services in Broward County for over 24 years, helping over 760,000 individuals.
In addition to food distribution and direct services, GCO collaborates with 80 other agencies that provide a full spectrum of community services to meet additional and long-term needs.
Plus, working with local South Florida businesses, including BrandStar, the Parkland Golf and Country Club, GCO’s annual gala event, The Gateway Gala Festival of Giving, promises to raise thousands more in dollars and loyalty while helping those families who need it most.
