LGBTQ community centers, including The Spahr Center, serve as safe spaces for nearly 40,000 LGBTQ people each week and 2 million people each year. During the pandemic, LGBTQ community centers are still providing critical services such as medical care, mental health counseling, virtual support groups, filling prescriptions, providing hot meals and check-in phone calls for older adults, serving as shelters for homeless youth, distributing nonperishable food items and hygiene products, case management, HIV testing, and hosting virtual engagement activities to decrease social isolation. Given the current financial crisis and loss of revenue, LGBT community centers could be forced to shrink our services, meaning tens of thousands of LGBTQ people could go without care.
We hope you will tune in to support The Spahr Center and our partner LGBTQ+ community centers. Stay safe and stay healthy.
Sincerely,Dana Van Gorder
