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

This Saturday, we’ll join thousands of our friends and allies to participate in the Women’s March in downtown Denver. The march is a movement for “social justice, human rights, equity, and inclusion,” and this is what we strive for—not just for ourselves, but also for the people we serve at The Gathering Place.

The Gathering Place hosted Congresswoman Diana DeGette and Colorado Nonprofit Association Executive Director Renny Fagen for a joint press conference to address the implications of the new tax reform bill on charitable deductions.

As we wrap up 2017 and reflect on the progress we made this year, we want to take a moment to thank you for your support. Whether you donated, volunteered, or simply told a friend about The Gathering Place, we're thankful for you. Because of you, we were able to meet the needs of 7,126 people who walked through our doors in 2017.

Many Thanks to the Kind Generosity of The Gathering Place Donors
