Mercy’s Gate (MG) began 30 years ago as a collaboration of churches and organizations called Northern Churches Care. The purpose was to join together to meet the physical, financial, emotional, and spiritual needs of people who lived in Colorado Springs. Today, they are known as Mercy’s Gate, and they provide much-needed food, clothing, help with utilities and rent, medical assistance…and most importantly, spiritual care and emotional support.
Programs include: rental & utility assistance, food pantry, community RN, legal advice, clothing & transportation vouchers, budget counseling and a yearly Health Fair and Back-To-School Program.
ACC’s involvement: Financial support; food and clothing collections; ACC volunteers are supporting various activities at Mercy’s Gate.
