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

Last week, we had the opportunity to speak at AT&T's Field Services Team event and meet their energetic staff members. We love meeting new supporters of The Gathering Place and getting the chance to share our story.

Every Wednesday, we highlight a few items that our members are in need of the most. This #WishListWednesday, we're wishing for donations of toothpaste, new women's and children's underwear, and infant formula. 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.

Shop online with AmazonSmile today through March 31 and Amazon will triple the amount donated to your charity of choice. Shopping on smile.amazon.com is just like shopping on Amazon, but every purchase generates 0.5% of the purchase price to The Gathering Place.

Many Thanks to the Kind Generosity of The Gathering Place Donors
