Mercy's Gate began 40 years ago as a food pantry called Northern Churches Care. As we've seen the city's boundaries change and needs of our community grow, we've grown too and expanded our services. For people in crisis, we offer relief, the hope of the Gospel, and a vision for restoration. In El Paso County, poverty is hidden in plain sight. One out of three residents work hard but still struggle to survive. A seemingly minor setback can become a crisis for many individuals and families living paycheck to paycheck. We work with our neighbors one-on-one to learn more about their situation, offer our direct services (including housing and utility assistance, food pantry, medical, clothing and gas vouchers), and connect them to other resources. Our efforts create a much-needed safety net, giving hardworking individuals and families a place to turn in challenging times. We believe "community" is what happens when we take care of each other.
