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.

It's Day Two of our 8 Ways of Giving holiday campaign! We're proud to be partnering with two local breweries this month to help raise awareness and funding for the members we serve. Grab a beer at Great Divide during the month of December or Ratio Beerworks on Wednesday, December 20th, and they will donate proceeds to The Gathering Place. Grab a beer and cheers for charity!

Every Wednesday, we highlight 3-4 food and toiletry items that our members need the most. These are things that members hope for when they arrive at The Gathering Place, in addition to a warm shower and a meal. It’s a simple and easy way that you can get involved in The Gathering Place and make an immediate impact for a member in need.

Many Thanks to the Kind Generosity of The Gathering Place Donors
