How to Become a Resident:

Individuals and families in need of assistance must complete a short application for residency at Gateway House (see Application Forms tab above). Applicants may stop by our office, where one of our staff will assist with completion of the application and with other required documentation.


Please note that a criminal background check and sex offender check will be completed on all adult applicants. Since the safety of the men, women and children staying at GHC is a top priority, criminal background checks which reveal violent offenses, sexual offenses or any other offenses which may affect the safety and well-being of GHC residents and staff will be carefully evaluated to determine eligibility. Know that we are committed to helping everyone in need of shelter find it, so we encourage everyone who needs our help to apply or contact our office!
