Gateway

Contact: Wendy Bonano

Gateway is a local, Christ-centered ministry driven by a life transforming mission: empowering women to choose LIFE for themselves and their unborn children.  As a pregnancy and sexual health resource center, Gateway is committed to serving women and men in the community by providing medical, educational and support services and resources related to pregnancy and sexual health without condemnation or manipulation.  Strategically located on Hillsborough Street within 3 miles of Raleigh’s six universities and colleges, Gateway primarily seeks to reach and serve the city’s college student population (51,000 students).  As a Christ-centered ministry, the gospel is central to who we are and how we serve in the community, and how we serve those who seek our services.
