The Fresno LGBT Community Center is currently the only one of its kind between Bakersfield and Stockton, although we will be opening an LGBT Community Center in Merced in August of 2014. We work daily to make Fresno and our surrounding communities a safer place for the LGBT community.
We strive to do this by being
VISIBLE, VOCAL, EDUCATIONAL & SUPPORTIVE
(We are in the process of updating the above video. We are currently open Tuesday through Saturday from Noon – 5pm)
The Fresno LGBT Community Center opened in January 2011. We serve as a SAFE space for the LGBT Community in the Central Valley. We are also an officially sanctioned EOC SAFE PLACE where youth needing housing assistance can come to get help. We are also an extensive resource and referral center for all LGBT needs. We offer a FREE media lending library (Books, Magazines, Publications and DVDs) as well as a FREE guest comptuer and printer. Our Community Center is available as a FREE meeting site for a wide variety of programs including support and social groups as well as informational workshops.
During any given month we service about 250 phone calls, 80 visitors, and hundreds of email inquiries a month. We currently have 2,000 names on our email list. The Center provides space over 30 times a month for groups and individuals to come in, get informed, get involved, meet, and connect.
Our volunteer staff also facilitates several community activities such as biannual LGBT themed health fairs and fundraisers, as well as bringing nationally recognized cultural events to the Fresno area.
