The Gathering Place is a 501(c)3 public charity based in the United States. We have been assisting those with HIV/AIDS and their families since 1987.
The vision of The Gathering Place is to improve the quality of life for children and adults living with HIV/AIDS through physical, spiritual, and emotional care and support. The name The Gathering Place (TGP) comes from the scripture Genesis 49:10, “Unto Him shall the gathering of the people be.” TGP has persevered to live out this verse by opening our doors and hearts to a hurting and dying world. To be effective in this endeavor, we have created case management and support programs that provide tangible needs for those with HIV/AIDS and their family members and ensure a safe, secure environment without discrimination or prejudice where they can share their needs.
- The Gathering Place provides an atmosphere of love and caring support without prejudice or discrimination for children and adults
- The Gathering Place maximizes the impact it has on the life of each person by focusing on quality of care it provides because we believe each person is created with purpose and value.
- The Gathering Place strives to meet each person’s specific physical, psychological, educational, emotional and spiritual needs through its programs, services and collaborative efforts
- The Gathering Place also strives to bring education regarding HIV to the public to prevent the spread of HIV and to increase the knowledge with compassion toward those already infected/affected by HIV/AIDS.
We are a loving hand of compassion to people without fear.
