About Salvation Army Gateway:

The Salvation Army Gateway (TSAG) is a men’s shelter and unisex drop-in centre for adults in the downtown core of Toronto. TSAG provides everything from emergency needs to a comprehensive case management program that works alongside abstinent homeless people on their journey out of the shelter system to becoming contributing members of the community. Open 24/7, TSAG shelter has a drop-in, health care clinic with a nurse and a physician, life skills groups, laundry facilities, chaplaincy, addictions counselling and support groups, recreational activities, and computer/web access for its clients to do housing and job searches. TSAG operates Gateway Linens, a social enterprise that provides employment, training, and assistance with personal financial management to eight of its homeless clients per year. It’s a community-based model of assistance to those who are chronically homeless and have difficulty accessing day-to-day service needs.

Financial Review:

TSAG is highly efficient, with administrative costs at 4% of revenues and no reported fundraising costs. TSAG has a substantial funding need with funding reserves covering only 10% of annual program costs.  Donations and grants from Salvation Army HQ provide 15% of revenues and the Gateway Linens program 11%. The balance of funding comes from the City of Toronto. Revenues have increased modestly in each of the last three years; however, City funding is now frozen.
