Gateway of Hope
House of Restoration
Gateway of Hope House of Restoration will help, restore and empower women survivors, eighteen years of age and older, who suffered from childhood abuse of all types. (childhood sexual abuse, emotional neglect, physical abuse, mental abuse and physical neglect.) As well women who were victims of rape, assault and sexual trafficking.
Our goals are for women to express their feelings and express their pain and heal from their suffering in a safe environment with a caring staff. First and foremost, teaching women that it was not their fault and that they did not deserve what happen to them. To help women on their journey towards healing and freedom by participating in groups, classes and activities as well as counselling sessions with qualified therapist. Assisting women with daily life skills by providing programs that enhance their quality of life. Helping women to cancel out negative thought patterns and behaviors and enhance awareness for a more positive outlook towards their future, to maintain a new and improved way of life. Where they will become emotionally, mentally and spiritually independent and free from their pain. These interventions will help women find their voice and healing power within, giving them confidence and the strength to face the future ahead. Helping women with daily life skills that will help them maintain their day to day living once they have finished the program.
Offering a residential setting, a home where women can stay up to six months, where survivors will feel safe and protected. Providing them with warm meals, beds and all the necessities needed, as well as study materials.
To have a house where they can also spend time through art therapy and music therapy. Or just enjoy their free time in the library with a warm coco or coffee through the winter, or a cool lemonade during the summer. The house will also be a safe place where women can come when things are not going well, and life feels too overwhelming. The house will be a place where there will always be someone to talk to, when they want to share and express what they are feeling at that moment. Whether someone is having a flashback or a nightmare, there will always be someone there to listen to them and bring comfort in a moment of chaos.
I want to let survivors of all types of childhood abuse, assault, rape victims and trafficking victims to know that they can heal and be made whole. That they can find peace of mind and rest for their hearts as they work through their journey towards healing, to no longer feel the pain of the past.
Gateway of Hope House of Restoration will be free of charge to those who can’t offered their stay, so they can focus on their healing.
Women over eighteen of any race, color, nationality or ethnic origin, will be accepted to all right, privileges and activities available at Gateway of Hope House of Restoration.
It is important to teach others about the danger of childhood abuse, rap, assault and sexual trafficking. Conveying awareness through training, advocacy and community forums, parents, schools, neighbors, business owners and law enforcement. So they can recognize the signs and symptoms associated with survivors and victims. While increasing awareness for, children, adolescents, and adults to be equipped to recognize the warning signs associated with survivors, child abuse, rape, assault and sexual trafficking. When communities and people are educated and join the fight to combat the day to day brutality against children and women/boys and men, we can begin to eradicate these senseless acts of violence.
Gateway of Hope House of Restoration is based on Judeo-Christian programs as well. To enrich and reach women in all walks of life, who need answers to their questions like…“why did God allow this to happen to me”. And many more answers to their questions. To give women hope, love, understanding, encouragement and healing.
