Community Council

The Gateway of Hope Community Council is an advisory body made up of volunteer members of the community who advise us on matters related to program, business and policy. Our Council is made up of members of the local business community, media, RCMP, City and Township councils as well as Gateway of Hope senior management members and Salvation Army Divisional Public Relations representatives. The Council is essential to our operation as it provides direct community input, helping us to ensure that our services are effectively and efficiently administered. The Council also acts as a voice into the community on behalf of Gateway of Hope and those we serve.
