Mission Statement

The mission of SafeGuards is to enhance the health of LGBT individuals through community-based research, collaborative programs and advocacy. SafeGuards promotes LGBT health and wellness through community outreach and education.

Description

SafeGuards collaborates with other organizations in a range of policy areas and services affecting LGBT health including: workplace equality, police and community safety, at-risk youth, LGBT families and caregivers, mental health, tobacco use, and access to health care and social services. Since 1989, SafeGuards keystone programs have promoted sexual health, including HIV and STD prevention. SafeGuards use a peer dissemination model of community outreach, providing outreach messages and health information to consumers in areas where social affiliation occurs, or where LGBT people are likely to meet. This approach is important to our goal of strengthening community engagement while serving hard-to-reach LGBT populations.
