About Us

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

Mercy’s Gate Rogue Valley is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that works to holistically support people working hard but struggling to make it in the Rogue Valley. Our mission is to decrease the incidence of homelessness by assisting low income households in crisis. We strive to help people who encounter an emergency that puts them at risk of
becoming homeless.


We work to provide:


• Practical help in areas of need that are physical,         
   financial, emotional and spiritual


• An IDP, Individual Development Plan: Working with     
   individuals and families in goal setting for self-sufficiency,   
   walking with them through difficult seasons of life’s journey


• Walking with individuals through the process of debt
   reduction and financial stability


• Mentoring through difficulties in relationships


• Connecting individuals and families to a church community


Our mission is made possible by the unified financial and volunteer efforts of a coalition of local churches, along with the gifts of individual donors. Stepping in as a safety net to stop a downward spiral will be a tangible prevention of homelessness and bring strength, health and demographic renewal to the Rogue Valley.


As we continue in our efforts to gather and equip more volunteers, we will gain the ability to provide more services.

Our Name

During Bible times, there was a common gate in the Old City of Jerusalem that worshippers of God entered through called the Golden Gate, or the Gate Beautiful. People entered here to come into the Temple to worship and pray to God. They were seeking the Mercy of God for their lives and situations, so it
also came to be known as the Gate of Mercy.

Some less fortunate people were unable to enter the temple because of poverty or illness and disability. These people positioned themselves at this "Mercy Gate" hoping to receive help and compassion from those entering the temple. You can read a specific occurrence of this in the Bible - Acts, Chapter 3, where a man who was born unable to walk received an amazing gift of complete healing at this gate.


Naming this organization "Mercy's Gate" expresses our desire to create a place where people with pressing needs can meet others connected to God and receive helpful support. We want to encourage those who enter here and share hope during difficult seasons of life. It is our desire to see all who come to Mercy's Gate Rogue Valley become connected to the God of Mercy and to a community of believers who can encourage personal and spiritual growth.
