A Place Where People Belong

The Gate is a drop-in centre welcoming people aged 26 and above, of differing cultures and life situations. It serves as a place to access resources to overcome life obstacles. Many patrons affectionately refer to The Gate as their "home."

What We Do

We are an outreach centre in Oshawa, ON for individuals experiencing homelessness. Our centre attracts people of all ages, cultures, and life situations.

Drop-In Shelter

Our centre is a safe and welcoming place for all individuals. We are a Christian organization and seek to reflect God's love to all who enter our doors.

Basic Provisions

We provide clients with the basic necessities they may be lacking, including food, water, clothing, and shelter.

Medical Services

Clients have access to several healthcare services, including basic healthcare, emergency dental care, and foot care.

At The Gate we aspire to be the hands and feet of Jesus, and a light in our community. 
Watch the video below for a glimpse of who we are through the eyes of those we serve.

They continually supply our centre with fresh eggs and chicken thighs – both staples in our meals for our patrons! We are immensely grateful for their partnership and helping us make a difference in our community💛🐓 See MoreSee Less
