One Night One Hope

Give a Night of Hope

It Starts With One Night

When you provide a night of shelter and care at Shepherd’s Gate, you’re welcoming a woman and her children in from the horrors of abuse and homelessness. For some, it may be the first time they’ve felt safe in weeks, months or even years.

Your gift of one night provides:

3 Hot meals

Safe Shelter

Case Management

What is Hope? »

When Teresa* arrived at Shepherd’s Gate, she felt hopeless. She had been sleeping in the open bed of a utility truck. She hadn’t bathed in days. Her stomach ached from hunger.

But her first night here, Teresa experienced One Night One Hope. Hope was felt in a full plate of nutritious food. She found hope in the hot shower and clean clothes she was given. And when she went to sleep in a safe, warm bed that night, Teresa knew there was hope to change her life.

She’s now completing our program and receiving the help she needs. And it all started with her first night here thanks to caring people like you.

*Teresa’s name has been changed to protect her privacy.
