About The Center
The San Diego Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community Center, Inc., (d.b.a., The Center) is one of the largest and most vibrant LGBT community centers in the nation. Functioning as the San Diego LGBT community’s anchor organization, The Center is led by a 10-member board of directors, employs more than 70 paid staff and utilizes more than 1,200 community volunteers to achieve its twin goals of promoting LGBT health/wellness and human rights. The Center provides targeted programs and services to the full diversity of the San Diego LGBT community, including men, women, youth, seniors, transgender and non-binary individuals, families, LGBT Latino community members and their families, and those living with HIV. Last year, The Center provided more than 82,000 direct service visits to San Diego community members, and through its events, activities and advocacy, touched the lives of thousands more.
The Center Begins Organizational Strategic Planning Process
As The Center continues to strive to serve our growing and diverse community, our Board of Directors and staff have initiated an exciting organizational strategic planning process. The goal of this process is to ensure that we maximize our organization’s resources to best continue to fulfill our mission in the years ahead. In the coming months, you’ll be hearing about the important work of The Center’s Strategic Planning Committee, which is spearheading this effort. As a #CenterSupporter, you’ll be invited to participate in this planning process. I hope that you will contribute to this effort in all the ways you can. Whether you have volunteered, donated, attended events or received support services at The Center, we wholeheartedly value your vision, ideas, and commitment to the work of Our Center. As this process moves forward, the committee will also seek the input of community and social justice partners. The Center’s strategic planning process has five key phases that will take place over the next year. Go here to read more about The Center’s strategic planning process.
