April's Agent of Change: The Center
at Monday, April 3, 2017Posted by
April’s Agent of Change organization is The San Diego LGBT Community Center, more affectionately known simply as THE CENTER.
Did you know they are the second oldest LGBT Center in the country? (They began in 1972!) And one of the largest too. They really are a community center in the broadest sense of the words— they really do so much from health services to advocacy to mentorships. There have housing programs, several youth programs, a cyber center with career building classes, HIV services, Veterans services, mental health services— the list goes on. Last year, The Center provided more than 61,000 direct services to San Diego community members. Big work on a big scale.
You may be familiar with them for a whole host of reasons and one big one is their very organized DINING OUT FOR LIFE event which happens this month on April 27. (And that’s why we picked this month for The Center.) On DOFL Day, restaurants give a minimum of 25% of their sales from that evening to the Center. We are proud to say we’ve been on board since BLAH opened.
