The overall mission of Gateway Domestic Violence Services is to prevent and eliminate intimate partner violence through counseling, residential care and empowering people for social change.
Gateway was incorporated in 1979 as a 501c3 organization dedicated to serving women and children who are victims of domestic violence and reside in Arapahoe County.
I have so much enjoyed the past year or so of my life with my children and with myself. I feel moments of true happiness again after going through a long spell of feeling little or nothing. Gateway has had a large hand in reviving my soul.
I have a lot to be thankful for and I'm determined to lead a peaceful life. Holidays are still hard without family near, but I've found a shared tenderness and compassion among the women and counselors. I thank my Gateway sisters for all the sharing we do in group. I'm thankful for my counselors, and the caring souls who held my hand and heart in the shelter in the early days. I'm determined to live a peaceful life. - Amanda
