WE ARE GATEWAY COMMUNITY
The Gateway Community is served by its own nonprofit organization in the heart of the City of Detroit. Gateway, also known as the Old North End, serves a 6-by-3-block area from Woodland Street on the north to Belmont Street on the south, between Woodward and Oakland avenues. Gateway’s mission is to: promote the growth and development of the community by improving the quality of life; providing homestead enhancements; strengthening families; reducing neighborhood blight; deterring juvenile discord and promoting civic awareness.
