Latin@x Services

The first program of its kind in the nation, The Center’s Nicole Murray-Ramirez Latin@x Services has provided a safe, welcoming, culturally and linguistically appropriate space for a range of services since 2004 for the Latino/a/x LGBTQ community. Latin@x Services allows community members to accept and embrace all aspects of their lives including their culture, traditions, language, spirituality, and sexual and gender identities.
