Community Partners

Our partners are instrumental in supporting the mission of The Gathering Place. We recognize that everyone has different needs while coping with cancer and by working with our local healthcare systems, we meet people where they are on their cancer journey.


This summer, The Gathering Place and Cleveland Clinic’s South Pointe Hospital are developing relevant programs for Warrensville Heights residents and those in the surrounding communities faced with cancer.


The Gathering Place became a Safe Zone when we pledged our commitment to create a community of respect and dignity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer participants. We look forward to a brighter partnership this year through programs we'll launch to educate and empower our friends throughout the LGTBQ+ community.


The Gathering Place is pleased to partner with MetroHealth Cancer Center by providing free resources for cancer for patients and their family members. Eileen Coan, MA, MLS and Mary Fisher-Bornstein, LISW-S are on location at the MetroHealth Main Campus on Mondays and Thursdays.


Our team continues their work with University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center. TGP Clinical Staff Members, Andrea Sonnie, LISW-S, OSW-C and Stephanie Hopkins, MS, RDN, LD, serve as Clinical Community Liaisons providing patients and their loved ones with information about and connection to The Gathering Place’s free programs and services.
