Gateway Battered Women's Services is the only agency specifically serving victims of family violence in the city of Aurora and Arapahoe County Colorado, including all of the rural cities. Gateway also serves women and children from the surrounding counties who may need our services.
The problem of domestic violence is widespread and affects families of all races, religions and economic lifestyles. It is estimated that half of all families are touched by violence in their homes.
Many women are killed each year by an intimate partner. The trauma suffered by children who witness family violence can result in their becoming the victims and batterers of the next generation.
The cycle must be broken. No one should live in fear of abuse in their own home.
The overall mission of Gateway Battered Women's Services (Gateway) is to work toward the elimination of personal and societal violence against all women and children by empowerment through education, support services, and by actually promoting social change within the community. In line with this mission, the following goals have been established to guide the shelter board and staff in meeting Gateway's mission:
To provide quality services in a safe and confidential environment for all women and children who are victims of domestic violence
To promote community awareness through training, education, and networking in order to achieve the community's involvement and support on issues of domestic violence
To empower women and children in developing violence-free lives through crisis intervention, advocacy, and support services
To promote accessibility to all women and children who are victims of domestic violence through outreach to traditionally silenced groups
To affect social change by evaluating and challenging attitudes and policies that promote violence against women and children
To effectively utilize volunteer services in all levels of the organization
Currently, Gateway provides a comprehensive array of programs and services to violent families, including, but not limited to:
24 hour crisis line offering crisis intervention, information, and referrals
Emergency shelter and Extended Stay Program for up to 38 women and children at any given time
