Review for The Gathering Inn, Roseville, CA, USA
I was absolutely terrified the day I went to The Gathering Inn. I had received the address from a referral on the phone. It was a Sunday afternoon, and I had no place to go.
A friend of mine dropped me off to the line standing in the alley of The Gathering Inn.
I waited in such fear of the unknown, but when I got up to the front of the line, there was a smiling face. I was given a number and was told I could come in and wait. From then, I made a friend who explained everything to me. We were to sleep in a church and would find out which one at 6pm. I was so very grateful for The Gathering Inn that night. Fortunately I made it into a transitional home the next day but I now find myself in a similar situation and I know should I become homeless, I know The Gathering Inn, with its clean bedding, good food and good people are out there. It helps in this time when I am desperate that I know at least I'd have somewhere to go.
