Testimonials

Teaching at the Gateway Woods School was a true blessing; it stretched me considerably as it deepened my faith and also forced me to confront the reality that there are so many hurting families in our world. I loved challenging students to think critically both about their world view as well as their math lessons and will miss interacting on a daily basis with the Gateway Woods family.

Brian (Former Math Teacher)

Gateway Woods is a great place to come and launch your career in the social work or mental health field. I am so thankful for the 7.5 years I worked onsite, and I am also thankful for the opportunity to continue to serve Gateway Woods on a long-distance basis. 

Kirby (Former Counselor)

Gateway is woven deeply into my DNA, and I am thankful to have been called here. I have served alongside incredible people, oriented by a Mission that is worth it.

These young adults need to learn the skills and resources to eventually move out of WillowBridge and live on their own – including how to get involved in a community and a church. Tenants have so much God-given potential, they just need caring adults to point the way to Jesus and to successful independence. WillowBridge staff and volunteers provide guidance, accountability, and support to tenants, based on their individual needs.
