UUCLB June Special Collection The Center

Our church has supported The Center for many years. The Center is currently in the midst of a top-to-bottom evaluation ensuring they “have the right staff, the best programs, the most inclusive practices and enough space to ensure that each and every person walking through our doors is afforded the opportunity to authentically thrive in our community.” This is keeping in line with their mission, vision, and values, which are ones we share. “The LGBTQ Center Long Beach advances equity for LGBTQ people through culturally responsive advocacy, education, programs, and services.”

If you are interested in reading more about their strategic plan, you can download a pdf of it at https://www.centerlb.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/LGBTQ-Center-LB-Strategic-Plan-20-24-web.pdf.)
