We encourage you to participate in our fourth annual Learn-a-thon as one way to keep “marching on” in the work of seeking reconciliation, peace and justice. Read More

"My almost-three-year-old asks every day if we can go to church. Thank you, Woodland Hills, and all the Heroes Gate volunteers for creating such a great environment for kids. My husband and I met at WH six years ago and now our son counts down the days until we get to go again. My heart could burst."
