About Us

Gathering for Women – Monterey (GFW) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that operates a day center for homeless and housing insecure women on the Monterey Peninsula. GFW addresses the need for nutritious meals, clean clothing, and a safe place to regain some badly needed dignity and self-respect.

Our Day Center is the only one of its kind in Monterey County. At the Center, we provide meals, shower facilities, and clean clothes, as well as case management five days a week, Monday through Friday. A woman’s basic needs and her security must stabilize – only then can she begin to think about her future.

In 2021, GFW is opened the first ever housing first 90 day shelter for homeless women and children with families in partnership with Community Human Services - Casa de Noche Buena.
