Compelled to meet the needs of the homeless, a group of Placer County
ministers met in January 2004 to discuss opening their doors during the
coldest months of the year. This collaboration of 13 congregations provided
food, shelter, hospitality, and a sense of dignity to the homeless of Placer
County. After three short years, The Gathering Inn evolved into a year-round
program due to its high demand.

Today, The Gathering Inn is the preeminent program serving the homeless of Placer County, providing services 365 days a year.
