Living on the streets can make a person feel like they are nobody at all. Everything we do at The Gathering Place is about helping the Guests feel like they are somebody. We believe that sense of self-worth is at the heart of recovery.
Warm showers, hot meals, clean clothes: Things the average person takes for granted, things the Guests don’t easily come by. But thanks to your kindness, we are able to offer hot meals, warm showers, laundry services, even hair care, to more than 2000 people every week. Guests leave here feeling better than when they first arrived, and better equipped to face another night beyond our doors.
Hundreds of people arrive with empty stomachs. We fill them. From Monday to Friday, we serve breakfast, lunch and dinner in our dining area. As well as brunch on Saturday and Sunday. We have 3 chefs whose meals promote sustainable food use, local products and zero food waste.
