The Gatehouse was created to give women and children a hand up for permanent, positive change.

The Gatehouse Story

The Gatehouse opened in 2015 as an initiative of projectHandUp, a Christian, 501(c)(3) organization, which Lisa Rose created in response to increasing unemployment, underemployment and other hardships which some women were facing in our community.

The need was obvious for a place and program where women could receive enough time, resources and relationships to create a foundation for permanent self-sustainability.

In order for single women and women with children to overcome temporary hardships, end cycles of underemployment or abuse, we take a holistic approach. Members who participate in The Gatehouse Program are surrounded by a team of experts who empower them with hope, coaching to set goals, and development of a Personal Empowerment Plan for permanent, positive change.

We believe in the dignity of earned success, and therefore, focus on offering our Members a hand up, rather than a handout, based on individual need to meet their goals.

The Gatehouse Program Members graduate with confidence and skills to manage their financial, emotional, spiritual and physical health.
