The biggest misconception about Iron Gate is everyone who comes here for food assistance is homeless. They are not. The majority have homes, apartments or stay in shelters. It is not homelessness that pours through our door every day, it's poverty and hunger. 

We work to keep Iron Gate a friendly, welcoming place. Many of the people-of all ages-who come through our doors have life stories that would break your heart. They come to Iron Gate for the food, the community and the refuge. Unless we ask, they don't tell their stories.

We want you to meet some of our guests. They represent the diverse demographics at Iron Gate. These are their stories.
