Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a safe, affirming environment for youth and young adults experiencing homelessness regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, and/or other identities. We firmly believe in meeting our participants where they are, without judgment or expectation, and letting them guide us toward their individual needs.

Description

We are an organization that works with youth and young adults (18- 30 years of age) currently experiencing homelessness in the Houston area . Every Sunday afternoon we serve between 25-40 young adults a cooked-from-scratch, family -style dinner. We also provide our participants with hygiene items, backpacks, clothing, and information/referrals to community resources that can assist them in meeting their needs .

Open Gate is not a religious program in any way; it is intentionally secular , and we are a 501(c)(3) organization .
