Meet Basic Needs

Meet Basic Needs

At The Gathering Place, we are accepting of every individual who walks through our doors. Once you get to know us, you'll probably hear us say that we "meet people where they are" along their journey. This means that we don't have any requirements or demands of the people we serve. Members can utilize our services at their own discretion and of their own free will.

Immediate Services

Resource Advocates on the Community Access Team respond to our members' immediate needs with services that include showers, laundry, naps, mail service, locker storage, telephone access, and an extensive array of resources and referrals.

Family Program

Our Family Program provides tailored support services—including caring for children while mothers or guardians take advantage of our programs, or simply rest.

Food Services Program

The Food Services Program provides three freshly prepared meals each day served in our community dining room. In addition, we provide healthy groceries, baby food, formula, toiletries, and diapers to our members through Betsy's Cupboard.

Housing Stabilization Program

The Housing Stabilization Program—our only case-managed program—provides assistance with finding, securing, and maintaining stable housing for those members who are especially vulnerable. 

Many Thanks to the Kind Generosity of The Gathering Place Donors
