SARATOGA — The Gateway House of Peace, a not-for-profit organization offering hospice care, has been serving the Saratoga County region since 2014 as a safe, comfortable and caring home for terminally ill patients. 

Gateway House has always relied on the generosity of this community for support, as they are a donor-driven community organization which receives no insurance reimbursements or government funding, and care for residents and their families is at no fee to them.

In an effort to become more self-sustaining, Gateway House is seeking to open a Thrift Store that would allow to build upon the fundraising success the organization has had in the community with yard sales. With that goal in mind, Gateway House is seeking the donation of a building or location that could be used for such a Thrift Store. Gateway House of Peace believes this gift would allow them to achieve a longevity of service for our community.
