The Gathering Tree

Shelter for the Homeless

A not-for-profit organization with the goal of keeping our homeless friends off the streets and safely sheltered. #NoOneSleepsOutside

In the fall of 2010, ten individuals, led by Dr. David and Linda Brown, formed The Gathering Tree to do ‘more’ for their city’s homeless population. With gaps in the system, The Gathering Tree set out to create a community that would give the chronic homeless a home to call their own. In 2016, Eden Villages was born. With the expansion of Eden Villages not only in Springfield, MO but across the country The Gathering Tree needed an alternative to provide shelter for the homeless at night. 

In 2020, the first Revive 66 Campground opened for overnight visitors to clean up and sleep safely. With these resolutions and many new efforts growing in cities across the country, it is The Gathering Tree, Inc. intention to make all cities a place where #NoOneSleepsOutside.
