Those accepted into the program are required to attend a weekly 90-minute group session for a total of 22 weeks. Groups for men are co-facilitated by a male/female team and are conducted 4 days each week, morning, afternoon, and evening.

Victim Contact Program

The Gateway Project contacts victims by letter and telephone in order to provide information about the project, offer safety planning assistance, crisis counseling, referral to services and to obtain victim input on abuser behavior. The safety of the victim is always the priority when initiating contact or using any information provided by a victim. Abusers are required to provide written permission in order for program staff to discuss case specifics with the victim. If you are a victim or partner of a man currently or previously in our program, and would like to speak to someone, please contact us.
