We are so lucky to have Pat as a volunteer!  He is always at drop-in hours to lend a helping hand and kind listening ear.  Pat also volunteers at the Mishawaka Food Pantry and brought a collection box that will stay at the Center, please bring donations next time you visit us.

Happy Giving Tuesday!

Today, alongside many worthy community organizations, we ask for your support. The LGBTQ Center in South Bend, Indiana is a community of stories. A transgender person who drives two hours to attend our support group. A suicidal LGBTQ teen who finds a reason to live. An ally who comes to our space to learn. Someone looking for a doctor that won’t discriminate. A person who meets the love of their life at one of our community dinners. We’ve seen exponential growth in the last year with 100 people coming through our doors each week, approximately one half of this being LGBTQ youth. As a small (but mighty) non-profit, we survive because of donations from individuals like you. Whether you can spare five, five hundred, or 5,000 dollars, every bit makes a difference. Your donation will go towards paying utilities and rent, buying pizza for our hungry teens, empowering political advocacy, keeping the doors open for our eight support groups, promoting wellbeing for LGBTQ people and their allies, and supporting the 95% of our programming that is free and open to the public. We are a community where everyone in valued, respected, and empowered. This Giving Tuesday, support The LGBTQ Center and other local organizations that are standing on the side of love. Click here to learn the many ways you can help in our crucial work. If you can’t donate, you can contribute your time and talents or simply share this status. We are grateful for each person in our community that has supported us; thank you.
