Ensure that everyone who walks through the doors of The Gathering Place has a Safe Place.
Thirty years ago, The Gathering Place was founded because women and their children did not have a safe place to go during the day, after the night shelters had closed. Today, The Gathering Place has grown but still stands on the same initial principle that it did when it was founded: first and foremost, it is a safe place.
Safe Place, The Gathering Place’s new monthly giving program, ensures steady support throughout the year so that all who visit us will unquestionably have a safe place to spend their day. Without our wonderful building or our community dedicated to making The Gathering Place safe and respectful for everyone, we would not be able to offer any of our transformational programs and services.
With your monthly support, we know that we will be able to serve a healthy, warm meal to a mom and her son tomorrow. We know that we will continue to see the drive and concentration of a woman enrolled in our GED program. And we know that we will be able to offer a safe daytime refuge for a transgender individual, whose relief at walking through our doors shows that she has finally found a safe place to spend her day.
