Mission Statement

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center provides a home for the birth, nurture and celebration of our organizations, institutions and culture; cares for our individuals and groups in need; educates the public and our community; and empowers our individuals and groups to achieve their fullest potential. The Center is widely recognized as the heart and home of the New York metropolitan area's lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities. Our mission: to be a safe gathering place and source of hope, strength and pride for approximately 250,000 individuals who will use our facilities this year; to foster self-empowering organizational activities by providing, at below-market rents, permanent home for our tenant organization and regular meeting space for nearly 400 other community groups; and to provide essential health, social service, educational, public policy, recreational and cultural programs to this historically under-served community.

Description

The Center was founded in 1983. Today, 5,000 people come to the Center each week to participate in almost 400 groups. Center staff and volunteers produce 27 mental health, cultural, recreational, and public policy programs, each conceived to meet the growing needs of our communities.
