who we are

Our mission is to provide housing that is more than just a place to live because we are called to love God and our neighbors as ourselves. It is a transformative community that allows people to prosper because we are called to carry one another’s burdens.

 

We believe that housing is a catalyst for economic development and upward mobility for God’s glory, a platform for connection and community for God’s family, and a foundation for a holistic approach to wellness for God’s image.

 

We envision a world where everyone has access to affordable, safe, and quality housing that meets their needs and aspirations because we are committed to God’s justice and mercy. We strive to create housing solutions that are innovative, inclusive, and impactful because we are inspired by God’s creativity and generosity.

 

We partner with local stakeholders, residents, and experts to design and deliver housing that is responsive to the diverse and dynamic contexts of our communities because we are part of God’s mission and kingdom.

 

We are not just building houses, we are creating homes. Homes that empower people to pursue their dreams, to overcome their challenges, and to thrive in their lives because we are empowered by God’s grace and truth. Homes that foster social cohesion, cultural diversity, and environmental sustainability because we are stewards of God’s creation and diversity. Homes that inspire hope, joy, and gratitude because we are recipients of God’s love and blessings.

 

We are passionate about our mission and we invite you to join us in making it a reality because we are partners in God’s work.

Our roots grow deep

The Gateway Collective was formed with passion and courage by St. John's Ministries, a non-profit organization whose mission is to honor the dignity, restore hope and create lasting change for those experiencing homelessness or housing instability in the Green Bay community.

Like St. John's Ministries, The Gateway Collective is founded and rooted in Christian values.  And while our focus will be different, both organizations will seek to tackle homelessness and housing instability from different angles.

Together, we are stronger.
