Volunteer & Intern Opportunities

About our Volunteer Program

Gateway relies on volunteers to help run all of its programs. In 2016, 128 volunteers donated 4,399 hours of their time to the agency. These are some examples of Gateway’s volunteer assignments:

  • Help facilitators with children’s support groups (Monday or Thursday evenings).
  • Assist in the front office with phones and clerical tasks (needed daily).
  • Grocery shopping (flexible times).
  • Facility maintenance (flexible times).

Training will be provided, and background checks are required for most assignments.

Unfortunately, we are not able to accept volunteers who are under 18 or those completing court-ordered community service.

Meet some of our volunteers.

Special Volunteer Needs

We need a group or individual to provide dinners for support group participants about six times per year (once every other month) on Monday or Thursday evenings. Each meal is prepared for about 50 women and children. Past volunteers have found it to be helpful to work with a group of friends, book club or Sunday school class.

Contact us for more information about how to get involved. Thank you!



Interns seeking academic credit are encouraged to apply for an internship at Gateway. Gateway is able to work with students in undergraduate and some graduate degree programs. We frequently host students who are working toward degrees in psychology, social work, pre-OT, criminal justice, human services and other related fields.


We launched an online thrift store in 2024 to raise money for our programs. We need business, marketing, or fashion merchandising students to help list items online.
