OutCenter of Southwest Michigan

The OutCenter is a small but mighty and oh so necessary charitable organization working to provide support to LGBTQ+ people and their families in mostly rural and small town communities across Berrien, Cass and Van Buren Counties in Southwest Michigan.

There are a number of volunteer opportunities to numbers to list and we are a very responsive organization, open to new areas of activity when needs arise.

So if you want to be a part of something amazing happening in rural areas, contact us, provide some information about yourself, and we'll set up a meeting to further discus your interests, skills, et al, and our needs.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Mission Statement

The mission of the OutCenter is to provide support and advocacy for respect, understanding and nondiscrimination to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and allied persons and their families in Berrien County, MI.

Description

The OutCenter Believes:

1. All members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community regardless of age, ability, race, gender, socio-economic class, sexual orientation, or gender identity deserve to be welcomed, celebrated and to become an integral part of a healthy society.

2. The inherent dignity, value and worth of all human beings must be upheld regardless of age, ability, race, gender, socio-economic class, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

3. Violence, racism, gender injustice, classism and homophobia must be eradicated.

4. All individuals have a right and responsibility to full participation in society.

5. We should strive to develop an attitude of acceptance, appreciation and affirmation of all forms of diversity. Diversity is an asset.

6. Investing in youth is essential for their future and our community.

7. We should strive to develop a culture that fosters social activism that works to counter injustice.

8. It is our responsibility to challenge popular culture, media, faith communities, religious institutions and texts that perpetuate the devaluation of people based on age, ability, race, gender, class, sexual orientation and gender identity.

9. We should strive as an organization to be as "green" as possible at all times in all places. Everyone has a responsibility to work for a healthy and sustainable natural environment.
