    The staff at the Gathering Place treated me with empathy love and respect, even when I would get so frustrated. They understand my situation and helped me as much ch as they could and I will always be grateful. I wish we didn’t have to wait so long to get a place to live but this was out of their hands. I understood that and they made sure that I was safe and made special accommodations because of my health. I am so grateful for their thoughtfulness and not making this drop in center feel cold and distant from those who need help. Thank you all the staff at The Gathering place
