Our Center was created when it was noticed that the LGBTQA community was in need of a place that provided programs, services, and resources for the community. The group incorporated with the State of Nevada as a domestic non-profit organization on May 29, 2009.
We work to establish and maintain a safe, empowering, and supportive center in Northern Nevada that addresses advocacy, education and services.
In order to achieve this mission we work to:
- Build a foundation to sustain a community center, where people of all ages and back grounds can come together for support, education, and social activities;
- Connect community members, organizations, and resources to encourage advocacy, cultural development, and personal well-being, and;
- Strengthen the network of support to increase innovative programs and services.
We will Build, Connect, and Strengthen the LGBT community to celebrate diversity and sustain a thriving, community-based organization for the empowerment and support of LGBT people and our allies in Northern Nevada.
The purpose of Our Center is for charitable and educational purposes, including, but not limited to, the support, education and advocacy of the LGBTQA community in Northern Nevada, including its members, allies, and those confronted with sexual orientation and gender identity issues. In addition, we seek to promote awareness and acceptance, provide a safe and accepting environment for members of the community and their allies, and advocate for equality of all individuals.
