our mission

The Gathering Place (TGP) offers services to combat poverty and address the impacts of marginalization and oppression that are often contributing factors to poverty or homelessness. By offering low-barrier access to a broad range of basic necessities and wrap-around care options, TGP guides women, transgender and non-binary individuals, and children living in poverty from a place of crisis and instability to one of stability and security. While we refer to those we serve as "members," no fees are ever charged for programs or services.

We believe deeply in the power of our community and continually work to strengthen it. Our key values include recognizing individual strengths, building respect and trust, and offering unconditional acceptance.

When it comes to accessing essential services and resources, like showers, food, a safe space, case management, and housing navigators, how many hoops should people have to jump through? TGP has adapted to a low-barrier services model in order to build a stronger community and open up access for those that struggle more to gain it.
