Started in the winter of 2018 after a group a volunteers saw that there wasn't a space in Ypsilanti for folks to get warm. Partnering with Riverside Arts Center and MISSION, the Ypsi Gathering Space (YGS) is a non-monetized space were those experiencing homelessness, housing insecurity and lack of community can come to get warm, connect to resources and grab a bit to eat. Through the genitourinary of local restaurants Veg-O-Rama, Maiz, and Bezzy's YGS is able to provide food for folks to eat while creating art and friends. The space is 100% donation and volunteer based, so to keep open we are always looking for new friends to join us. If interested in volunteering please come on Saturdays at 5 pm for an orientation training. More information please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or can call us at 734-717-1209.
