our mission

Founded in 1986, The Gathering Place is the only daytime drop-in center in metropolitan Denver that serves women, their children, and transgender individuals who are experiencing poverty, many of whom are also experiencing homelessness. 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 make it stronger. Our key values include recognizing individual strengths, building respect and trust, and offering unconditional acceptance. 

Latest from The Gathering Place

On #WishListWednesday we highlight items that are easy to donate and that our members need most. This week, we're wishing for donations of toothpaste, snow boots, and teen clothes. (Please, only new or gently used boots and clothes.)

The budget proposed by President Trump caught our attention this week. It includes deep cuts to programs and benefits that house, feed, and medically care for millions of low-income families.

Not only is it Valentine's Day, it is also #WishListWednesday, when we highlight items that our members need most. This week, we're wishing for donations of toothpaste, deodorant, and handwarmers.

Many Thanks to the Kind Generosity of The Gathering Place Donors
