Mackenzie Investments Charitable Foundation Donation

The Gatehouse would like to take this opportunity to thank Mackenzie Investments Charitable Foundation for their generous donation of $20,000 to The Gatehouse Child Abuse Investigation and Support Program. These funds will be used to support the program and the role of the Gatehouse Child and Family Advocate to continue to provide essential services to children, youth and families going through the investigation process.

Theatre Etobicoke donation on behalf of Ms. Nicole Bailey

The Gatehouse would like to thank Ms. Nicole Bailey, a member of Theatre Etobicoke.  She was part of the cast of their recent production of Bedside Manners and won the ticket sales competition which included a  $200 prize. In her campaign to sell tickets, her goal was win to donate those funds to the Gatehouse. She hopes to do so again, having just been cast in Theatre Etobicoke’s next show There Goes the Bride. It goes on stage at the Assembly Hall on March 26, 27, 28, 29, 2015.

Drop in Program moved to alternate location Dec 14 & 21

The Gatehouse drop in group will be moved to another location Sunday December 14th and Sunday December 21.
