{INDEPENDENCE}

{INDEPENDENCE}

{INDEPENDENCE} Independence is a core value supporting all the work we do here at The Gathering Place. We believe that all of our members--regardless their background or circumstances--have the right to lead independent, fulfilling lives. We also know that individual independence looks quite different from member to member; for some, it’s having access to showers and meals while living in a car—ready to follow any opportunity at the drop of a dime. For others it means knowing their kids are safe while they pick groceries from Betsy’s Cupboard, or that they have a safe refuge where an abusive partner can’t reach them.

As the whole country celebrates its independence this week, we hope you join us in celebrating our members and their incredible spirits. We celebrate the hundreds of members who come each day seeking opportunities and services—some for years. We also celebrate members like Berda, who took five years to complete her GED at The Gathering Place. She was 61 years old and hasn’t been back for services since.
