Care. Connection. Compassion.

So much respect for Mercy's Gate. They helped me in my greatest time of need. Thanks to them, I was able to keep my electricity on. They provided me with food, and they helped me pay my rent during financial hardship. So much love and compassion for the community. Thank you so much for all you did for me and my son. As a single mother, it's very tough being on your own. But I’m grateful for people like this.

Renee, Direct Services Recipient

In a time when I was lost and scared in a foreign state and town, they were there to give me hope and help me find out who Jesus really is. I thank them so much, and I know I'll never be able to show how grateful I am through words, but I hope they all know they saved my life that day.
