Boys 2 Men Lawn Care Service
A team of young men at The Gate serve the elderly, disabled, and veterans in our community by cutting lawns and taking care of yards. These young men are hard workers and thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to serve and bless others, while also learning to give their all and take pride in their work. They are not only learning how to work in a business, but they’re learning how to run a business, and they are gaining life skills that will set them on a great course for the future.
LCC – High School Equivalency Diploma (GED)
Lenoir Community College organizes classes across the service area to prepare individuals to pass the High School Equivalency Diploma Test (formerly know as GED). The HSED test covers content that a graduating senior is expected to know. The Gate of Lenoir County partners with LCC to offer this program here at The Gate. HSED classes are taught by instructors from LCC in the mornings, afternoons and evenings so that all desiring to attend can find a class to fit their schedule. Students attend classes here at The Gate until they demonstrate proficiency and successfully complete the High School Equivalency Diploma test battery. For more information on their partnership you may contact them at 252-939-3259.
A Different Color
A team of young women at The Gate serve those in our community who cannot afford to pay to brighten their homes with color! These young women love to work hard and love to see the joy it brings those they are ministering to. Their first “customer” was Miss Ella, 89 years young, thrilled to see her house transformed by the paint job. The women are learning to work hard, take pride in a job well done, and be a blessing to many along the way.
