Who is THE CITY GATE?
The City Gate is a non-profit organization that is first and foremost a church with the purpose of RECLAIMING, REBUILDING & RESTORING Lost and Broken Lives. We begin this mission by providing a "gathering place" at our downtown location that is open to the public with no respect of persons. Although we do not provide overnight stay, our facility is a day shelter from the elements to the homeless.
During regular business hours we provide:
- Clothing bank
- 2nd Harvest Food Bank
- Coffee, Breakfast and Lunch
- Blankets, Sleeping Bags, Toiletries and household items
- Fellowship and activities such as crafts and movies
In addition to our regular business hours:
- Sunday church service
- Dinner-Wednesday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday evenings
- Breakfast-Saturday morning
- Alberta House low income apartments above The City Gate
- Two emergency shelter apartments
The City Gate board of trustees, staff and volunteers are not afraid to get their hands dirty. We are the ground roots of hope for those who so often aren't in a position to see anything but hopelessness. From the homeless to low-income families, youth on the streets to those who are addicts, from the mentally ill to the outcast, The City Gate provides a place of refuge from the streets in a safe and family-like atmosphere.
We believe EVERYONE has a purpose and is worth reaching. Not all respond to our touch however in over 25 years of service we have seen countless men, women and children impacted by the love, support and provision from those who so selflessly give of their time, funds and resources here at The City Gate. Together we ARE making a difference!Our History:
The City Gate was formally incorporated on April 26, 1988 as the result of several pastors from local churches banding together to create a church specifically for Spokane inner-city dwellers. For any other questions
