Our Philosophy

The programs at The Gathering Place address the body, the mind and the spirit. We recognize that everyone has different needs while coping with cancer and we provide programs and services to meet people where they are on the cancer journey; whether you are the person with cancer or their loved one.

People often describe feeling a sense of peace when they walk through our doors. This comes from being a part of a community. This comes from feeling safe and connected. This comes from knowing you are not alone on your journey.

The Gathering Place believes in treating all people with respect and dignity. We acknowledge and honor the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals. We pledge to create and maintain an environment that embraces and includes diverse traditions, ethnicities, experiences and orientation.

Our Focus
