We had a great meeting tonight and heard from Carol Parcher who is the Director of Emergency Shelter & Housing Services for the Salvation Army at Langley’s Gateway of Hope. The Langley Gateway of Hope's motto is “Heart to God, Hand to Man” by providing food, clothing, shelter, support, and training to give people a hand up. I encourage you to check out the presentation which looks at the Gateway of Hope through the three pillars of sustainability: Environment, Economic, and Social.
Some interesting facts about the building:
-Geo-Thermal Heating and Cooling
-Windows and light tubes provide natural light and reduces electrical consumption
-Insulation newest technology
