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.

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.

Women in our communities face serious economic challenges related to gender, gender identity and sexual orientation. While women in the United States who work full time are typically paid only 78 cents for every dollar paid to their male counterparts, women in the LGBT community face an even greater income gap. This disparity is felt even more acutely for women of color, women of trans experience and those over 40.

The Center offers programs that women in our communities won't find anywhere else; programs tailored to their unique needs to achieve financial security and explore new opportunities.

We offer:

  • Individualized career coaching
  • Career trainings and workshops
  • Networking events
  • Women-focused programming at our annual LGBT Career Fair
  • Connection to women leaders and mentoring relationships
  • Promotion of best practices across industries

Find out about upcoming groups and events for women by visiting our Community Calendar.
