Katie Bentley named as an Ambassador for the St Kilda Gatehouse

Nathan Burgess - Wednesday, June 15, 2016

I am very excited to officially become an Ambassador for the St Kilda Gatehouse. The Gatehouse is a not for profit Christian organization which works alongside those involved in street based sex work or affected by commercial sexual exploitation as a result of hardship.

Through providing a place of belonging and engagement Gatehouse helps individuals address issues such as family violence, drug addiction, homelessness, poverty, mental health and social isolation. It is a place where individuals feel valued and important. For many who come from challenging backgrounds it is a source of dignity and hope. I have wanted to work with the Gatehouse for many years and felt that 2016 would be a good time for me with my family starting to grow older. I want to teach my children, and potentially inspire my staff, about principals of compassion and empathy.

"The St Kilda Gatehouse is a place where individuals feel valued and important. For many who come from challenging backgrounds it is a source of dignity and hope."

After completing my law degree, it was obvious I was never going to be a very good lawyer as I was more interested in how the individual was going to prepare to lead a more fulfilling life. Working with marginalized women in my local community is important to me. I believe it will help my family and my organization promote a culture of joy in 2016.
