Dear Members/Peers:

In keeping with our COVID compliance plan with our local health department, The Gathering Place is closed for visits due to 

Athens County designated as a RED Level.

Our warm line is still open during normal business hours: Mon-Sat. 10am-8pm Sun. 10am-6pm and a staff member will assist you or call if you just need to chat. 

We will still be assisting with basic advocacy and linkage services to other agencies and can conduct an outside in person in-take for services.

We got a van! Thanks to CARES Funding from Athens County, we have purchased a 15 passenger vehicle and are offering rides to essential services on Tues and Thurs from 10am-3pm. This is a service for members who have been engaged with services and you must call ahead the previous week to make a reservation.

We are also conducting about 12 hours of 

Zoom programming weekly.


Please see our January Calendar!

If you are new to The Gathering Place, please give us a call if you would like to visit and learn more about us. 740-594-7337
