About Open Gate DR2DV8

Empowering the next generation to impact on their community

We offer several different services for young people and their families irrespective of race, religion, ability, or gender. Our philosophy is faith based (Christianity) and we seek to advance our ideals through practice rather than indoctrination. In so doing, we have sought to marry our ideals with contemporary initiatives like social inclusion.
