Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The LGBT Center of Raleigh focuses on the holistic approach to community development. We look at making the Triangle region of North Carolina a more accepting and progressive space for LGBTIQ individuals and our allies.

We work on the five pillars of personal development through a myriad of programs:
1. Social / Emotional Health- As a place to gather, socialize, and mobilize.
2. Physical Health - As a place to find coordinated resources like a PCP or Dentist that is culturally competent.
3. Financial - As a place to come learn about employment, financial management, and property.
4. Spiritual - As a place to celebrate your faith, be it Christian, Jewish, Muslim, etc. Our Faith Forum boasts a huge attendance.
5. Environmental - As a place to learn about environmental pitfalls of the community, but also a place to recycle old electronics.

As a small nonprofit, we realize we cannot do this work alone. Thus, our major strategy in the field is to gain as many allies as possible who are in the best positions to advocate for our community. Equality NC, Time Out Youth, AAS-C, NC Center for NonProfits, Raleigh-Wake County Partnership to End Homelessness, Project 110, the Campaign for Southern Equality... theses are but a few organizations we leverage to lift our community up.

Maintaining our reputation in our donor base is also of the utmost importance as they create a diversified funding stream for the Center as a whole.

The LGBT Center of Raleigh holds over 20 programs, a library of over 3000 volumes, and roughly 500 volunteers who give over 10h/ year. While we know the struggles of moving a small nonprofit forward, we are confident that with our community partnerships and overall reputation that the Center will continue to grow it's programs and strengthen the donor base.

Policy, while not on our side at the moment, is moving rapidly in favor of the LGBT community.

In five short years, this organization has gone from non-existence to prominence. As one of the few LGBT Organizations on the media circuit, we are able to give a voice to a population that has historically been excluded from conversation. We've built one of the largest community lending libraries in the COUNTRY for LGBT books and DVDs. Businesses and individuals alike seek our community input and support... and that is the sort of community development our movement needs.
