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

The Gathering Place is currently recruiting new applicants for our Board of Directors.

On August 26, 1920, women were officially granted the right to vote when Congress ratified the 19th Amendment to the Constitution. This achievement is recognized with the celebration of Women's Equality Day every 26th of August. While we honor this day as a major milestone in the fight for gender equality, we cannot ignore that women of color were prohibited from voting until the Voting Rights Act in 1965.

Our Building for Dreams Gala is only 16 days away, and we don't want you to miss out on the fun! Here are 5 reasons you should join us on Saturday, September 9th at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

Many Thanks to the Kind Generosity of The Gathering Place Donors
