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

Every Wednesday, we highlight a few items that our members are in need of the most. This #WishListWednesday, we're wishing for donations of new and unopened Tylenol, travel-sized toothpaste, and hair dryers and hair straighteners. If you would like to support our members' immediate needs by donating any of these items, please deliver them to our facility at 1535 High Street during our normal business hours.

To welcome in the first official day of spring, we’ve curated five spring themed designs from Art Restart. Every piece you purchase from Art Restart, the social enterprise of The Gathering Place, generates proceeds for the artist in addition to funds to reinvest back into the organization.

We will be facing off against Bluff Lake Nature Center's Prickly Pear Saison in the Final Four round on Saturday, March 24 from 2 - 4:30pm. For every vote our beer receives, Factotum Brewhouse will donate $1 to The Gathering Place.

Many Thanks to the Kind Generosity of The Gathering Place Donors
