COVID-19 UPDATE: We have now resumed normal operations; however, masks are still required within the building.
COVID-19 has created a crisis.
Since Covid, the number of Guests coming to The Gathering Place have been increasing daily. Thousands of people come every week, most dealing with addictions, mental illness and abuse. This time of year is so difficult for the most vulnerable in our society. Please help in any way you can.
For many Guests, The Gathering Place is their only safe place to go. Some come for a meal or a shower. Others come for medical or dental care or a place to sit and rest. Recently we have added an emergency overnight shelter for those who have no place to go. What they get here above all is dignity. At The Gathering Place, we believe everyone deserves compassion.
But we operate largely on the kindness of others and we need your help to continue. Please give what you can, so we can keep helping the people who so many forget. They desperately need us.
