HIV AND AIDS

Since our founding in 1983, The Center has been fully committed to providing HIV and AIDS services to our community, which has been profoundly affected by the AIDS epidemic. Although awareness and treatment have improved vastly over the years, HIV and AIDS remain a serious threat to our communities.

We offer counseling for individuals, groups, couples and families, plus a variety of events, speakers and informal social gatherings for positive people and their loved ones. Our programs provide support for people infected and affected by HIV and AIDS and, thanks to our generous donors, we do it free of charge.

GENDER IDENTITY

The Center's gender identity programming fosters the healthy development of transgender and gender non-conforming people, partners, family and community. Through a range of transgender-driven supportive services, advocacy, outreach, education and capacity-building, The Center creates a safe and productive atmosphere for community-building, wellness and leadership development.
 
The Center’s programming provides an opportunity for trans-identified individuals to interact with other trans-identified and allied service providers, who serve as both powerful role models and supportive agents in the process of normalizing a person’s trans-identity.

IMMIGRATION

The Center’s immigration support group provides a safe, non-judgmental environment where you can connect with other LGBT immigrants and discuss issues related to living in a new country. We also provide information and referrals to other LGBT organizations that understand the unique needs of newly-arrived LGBT immigrants.

Regardless of your immigration status, our groups are a supportive place to meet and discuss your feelings and experiences.

We offer:
  • Information and referrals
  • Assessments and short-term counseling
  • Letters of support in asylum cases
  • Support and referrals for immigrants living with HIV and AIDS
  • Support groups for LGBT immigrants (English speaking group)
