Welcome to Citygate Network!

Since the late 1800s, rescue missions and like-minded ministries have been offering radical hospitality in Jesus’ name to people who are dealing with hunger, homelessness, abuse, and addiction. 

Citygate Network serves as the network where leaders of over 300 such agencies find the training, resources, and support they need to serve the individuals and families who arrive on their doorsteps every day of the year. If you are interested in volunteering at a place like this, our online directory will help you find a mission or kindred ministry in your area. The directory is also an excellent tool if you know of someone—a friend or a family member—who can use the kind of help that missions provide. 

While missions and ministries in membership with Citygate Network incorporate the core tenets of Christianity in all aspects of their work, they are open to people of every faith or no faith. The end goal is for individuals and families to have their lives and relationships restored through the life-transforming power of the gospel, and to be reengaged in meaningful ways with society.

Thank you for taking a look at these vital ministries and at Citygate Network.
