Since COVID-19 began the demand for the Center’s vital services, including health care, support for LGBTQ seniors and homeless youth, legal services, policy advocacy has increased. As a result of the pandemic, new needs emerged, including more and more people struggling with food insecurity.
Unfortunately, like all nonprofits, fundraising has declined dramatically. Despite this, organizations continue to rise to meet the needs of the community. Fortunately at this crisis moment dozens of the Center’s amazing friends from the entertainment world are coming together to reach out to those who can help make a difference in the lives of thousands of LGBTQ people.
