There are over a thousand people in St. John’s living on the streets or in hostile boarding houses. They’re struggling with any number of demons – hunger, abuse, mental illness, physical disabilities, and addiction. They’re barely surviving from day to day.
For many of them, The Gathering Place is their only safe place to go. Some come for a meal or a shower. Others come for medical care or a place to sit and rest. What they get here above all is dignity. Everyone deserves compassion. There is no “nobody” here.
But we operate entirely on the kindness of others. And we need your help to continue. Please give, so we can keep helping the people who so many forget. They desperately need us.
