The Gathering Place (TGP) is a caring community that supports, educates and empowers individuals and families touched by cancer through programs and services provided free of charge. Located in Cleveland, Ohio, TGP offers programs of emotional support, gentle exercise, hands-on healing touch, and information, available to the whole family.

As a public space for people of all ages — Norma’s Garden provides support and healing to people with diverse needs and expands the range of programs offered at TCP
