Flavor of Jacksonville is Gateway’s annual fundraising event showcasing the diversity of Jacksonville’s culinary scene.
Proceeds raised from this event will help support Gateway’s second phase of the capital campaign that will include renovations of three older buildings containing 108 rooms used for recovery housing. Forty of the 108 rooms will be designated as Transitional Recovery Housing with Supportive Services. This much needed housing will serve up to 80 new individuals, or mothers/fathers with children, when completed in Summer 2019.
We hope you will join us for an exciting evening of food and entertainment! Attire for the event is casual.

WJXT Channel 4/News4Jax (January 23, 2018) – “Project Save Lives could impact statewide opioid epidemic battle”
This year marks Gateway’s 40th anniversary. In 1978, a group of recovering alcoholics wanted their “miracle of sobriety,” which was achieved through the success of 12 Step recovery and treatment, brought to the Jacksonville community for those suffering from addiction, especially those without means to pay. Today, Gateway has become a recognized leader in the treatment of substance use disorders and mental health while changing the lives of over 300,000 people through treatment and prevention services.
