Volunteering at Gateway is so much more than work.

This is one of the awesome things about volunteering at Gateway Woods: not only does your time help beautify our campus, prepare for the Auction and more, but it also shows something very unique to the residents. It is shocking for a resident to see someone willing to give of themselves for no personal benefit. That just doesn’t compute. If you would like to begin impacting lives through volunteering your time at Gateway Woods then please fill out application below.

Testimonials

It was a really awesome experience to get to help those in need. Also to see how the love of God is working in so many lives and bringing the joy to others. What an amazing organization that the Apostolic Church can help fund and support.

Cindy (Volunteer)

As a houseparent, summers are always the hardest to manage. Volunteers are a breath of fresh air and help bring the campus to life.

Jon (Former Houseparent)

I feel the love and see the love all around because of all they (volunteers) have done for Gateway.

Tracy (Former Resident)
