The mission of Gateway Open and Affirming (ONA) Resource Line is to serve as a resource for all people who seek a spiritual support for LGBTQIA (Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Trangender/Queer or Questioning/Intersexual/Ally) individuals and their families and friends.
HOW DID THE RESOURCE LINE COME TO BE?
It was brought to our attention that there have been several instances when some individuals were struggling with LGBTQIA situations and had been turned away when seeking guidance and support from their religious institutions. We felt a calling from God to provide a personal and/or anonymous telephone line to support these individuals with resources in the spirit of the extravagant welcome of the United Church of Christ.
