Frequently Asked Questions


I’m not homeless, but need some help.  Will The Gathering Place help me?
Yes. The Gathering Place services and programs are free to all women, transgender individuals, and their children who are in need.

What is a “member”?
Instead of the term client, The Gathering Place uses the term member to refer to the people who seek out and benefit from our services and programs. There is no membership fee.

Can I bring my pet?
No. The Gathering Place follows ADA rules and allows service animals in the building, but pets are not permitted on the property. We also do not recommend that you leave your pet in your vehicle while at The Gathering Place, because that could place your pet in unsafe conditions especially during hot or cold weather.

Can I get bus tickets?
The Gathering Place does not provide bus tickets as a general, readily accessible service.
