Dear Friends of Patriots,

Patriots Gateway Community Center was able to “move forward” serving hundreds of children and youth at our center through several programs you have supported. We are so grateful to the supporters of our past Moving Forward campaign, which allowed us to completely payoff property debt on Patriots. We were able to raise $300,000 toward the complete debt retirement of our original building mortgage cost. Our lender was willing to develop an alternative plan to move forward and retire our entire indebtedness and mortgage at Patriots in June of 2021.


We are now Moving Forward with program partners in this new year. We are Moving Forward with our partners to provide incredible services to hundreds of teenagers. This includes the Chanclelight Education Services, Innovative Learning Center and Youth Services Network. We are Moving Forward with those who donated to upgrade our WI-FI at Patriots and purchase the needed equipment and installed our wireless hotspots in several locations.


We are Moving Forward in 2023 to continue the legacy at Patriots of serving the community youth and children. Thank you for your consideration of helping us to “move forward” at Patriots!


Pastor Michael Thomas, Interim Executive Director
