The Gateway Program reached out to help former prisoners.

A century after the Mission’s founders first minister to men behind bars, the Mission reaches out to help former prisoners through its Gateway Program. Focused on spiritual growth, employment and housing, this program helps ex-offenders navigate the often rocky road following incarceration.

This stand-alone program ends in 2015, when it is integrated into the Mission’s full-time residential programs, Discipleship and Christ Recovery Center.
