Despite its limited space, The Gathering Place is committed to providing shelter to those in need during extreme weather throughout summer and winter months. During these conditions, The Gathering Place keeps its doors open between its breakfast and lunch service to allow clients to either cool off and enjoy a refreshing glass of water, or warm up with a hot cup of coffee or tea.
The Gathering Place is also the umbrella organization for North Bay’s Warming Centre, offering material and administrative support as the Warming Centre transitions to a new, permanent building in the Triple Links Centre on Fisher Street.
During winter months, The Gathering Place keeps a supply of warm toques, mitts and scarves for anyone who walks in without them. We also partner with Rebuilt Resources throughout their Bundle Up North Bay campaign to act as a “Coat Card” Agency.
