Welcome to the OutCenter
YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD LBGTQ+ COMMUNITY CENTER
We take our work very seriously as a nonprofit that embraces both the work of charity and the work of change – responding to the needs of LGBTQ+ people and their families, helping to make sense of the world we live in now, and mapping the way toward a more equitable, diverse and inclusive future.
You will find great information about services, precedent setting programs, FUN(d)raising events, and links to resources found locally, across the state, and across the nation. You will also find opportunities to get engaged in community advocacy, learn more about the issues that impact you and your loved ones – and what you can do about it.
Upwards and onwards as ever,
Mary Jo Schnell
Providing a safe, welcoming space for the LGBTQ+ community, primarily youth, to feel accepted and understood along every step of their journey.
Through information comes understanding. That’s why we educate schools, parents and the broader community on what it means to be LGBTQ+ and how to be an ally.
Leverage the LGBTQ+ community with the funding, resources and support necessary to help each individual embrace their true selves and live a life full of purpose and equality.
