Every dollar you donate helps empower and bring healing to survivors, and helps spread awareness about the devastating impact of childhood sexual abuse to create healthier, stronger communities.


All Gatehouse volunteers are committed to the mission “A future where those impacted by childhood sexual abuse can heal and reclaim their voices.” Gatehouse volunteers are involved in many areas. They are the heart of our work.


The Gatehouse started its operations on June 20, 1998, and since then the Gatehouse has helped thousands including children, youth, and adults who have experienced childhood sexual abuse, heal and reclaim their voices
