We are thrilled to feature Paul Davis, Executive Director of The Gathering Place, as our May Speaker. Established in 1994, The Gathering Place primarily serves homeless and underprivileged people, offering supports for those 26 years old and older who lack assistance, employment or social supports. Paul brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in the public sector and will be sure to enlighten us with stories of hope and positivity.
