If you want to find out about what is going on at The Gathering Place, you have come to one of the right places.  We also suggest that you take a look at our Blog, ​Events Calendar, and Facebook Page.

  • We are increasing the price of member handmade cards from $2 to $3 starting October 1st (more about why below). Until then, you can come by during our regular business hours and stock-up on these $2 mini masterpieces for the holidays. Steve, our Arts Program Manager promises that "there’s not a dud in the bunch."

  • The Gathering Place will be closed on Monday, September 5th for Labor Day.

  • The Gathering Place is a finalist in First Western Trust's online grant contest.

  • {HOPE} Hope is a keyword in the mission of The Gathering Place, but what is hope anyway? It is nebulous, but it tips the balance of any situation toward the positive.

  • {ADVOCACY} The Gathering Place has an Advocacy Committee that looks at legislative and government-related issues that may impact our members and their families. The current focus is on helping members register to vote in time for the presidential election in November.

  • Baere Brewing Company has named The Gathering Place as their August Charity of the Month and they will donate 1% of ALL August sales and 25% of happy hour sales on Thursday, August 25th. Please stop by Baere for a tasty brew anytime during August and be sure to join us on August 25th when we will be there doing drawings for great prizes!

  • {GALA} Our annual gala brings together donors, staff members, community partners, and members as we celebrate our shelter’s accomplishments and remarkable community of care.

  • {ENGAGE} Nearly a year ago and with guidance from CHARG Resource Center, we formed a committee to engage our members who receive services in agency decision-making processes alongside staff, Board members, and volunteers. The Member Engagement Steering Committee (MESC) is co-chaired by a member and a Board member and meets monthly.
