I am so grateful for The LGBT Center of Raleigh. Their programs and supportive services are extremely valuable to our community. I have been a volunteer there since January 2016 and it has been an enjoyable and rewarding experience. It feels so good to share in the positive and affirming atmosphere.

I have worked for the LGBT Center for almost 2 years now. It has been an amazing experience. The staff works incredibly hard and so do the volunteers. Everyone is lively and the atmosphere is incredible. Never mind donating my time to be with these wonderful people and work for such a great community.

The LGBT Center of Raleigh is literally my favorite place to go in Raleigh. I love that I can walk in the Center and always feel like I belong. Something that is too rare in life. There is always someone to talk to who sees things a little (or a lot!) different from myself and i find that the conversations I have on the weekends make me think all through the week. The sharing of minds that goes on here is phenomenal sometimes!

The LGBT Center of Raleigh gives a voice and a presence for LGBTQIA individuals in the Triangle community. It also offers a safe space for our community members, especially the youth. The programs are excellent and make the best efforts to be mindful and supportive to all of our community. The annual OutRaleigh event is amazing and not to be missed if you are in Raleigh during the first weekend in May. Volunteering at the Center and for OutRaleigh has made me feel more connected to my community. I get back more than I give, every time.

This is by far the most welcoming community I've ever have the pleasure of meeting and becoming a part of. Even as an allie I've never felt this welcomed. THANK YOU LGBT center of Raleigh for the awesome work you do every day.

The center has been an amazing way for me to get involved in ways I never thought I could. It has also helped me love my identity and to be confident with who I am and for what I believe in. I love the center and everyone connected with it

The center has truly been a safe space for me since moving to NC. I have met a few people and have visited a couple of programs in the past six months. I have had nothing but a positive experience. They offer a great number of programs as well as resources. After moving to NC I need help with finding a healthcare professionals. Their website has an extensive list of resources which was impressive.

I have been a volunteer at the LGBT Center of Raleigh since November of 2015 and just love spending my Sunday's there! Everyone there puts their heart and soul into the place. There has never been a time that I have not felt loved and welcomed. It has been a joy to be a part of everything they are doing for the community and I hope to continue doing my part for as long as I can.

I first went to the center because of my teenage daughter. The people were so welcoming and affirming, we instantly felt at home. I enjoy volunteering there as often as my schedule allows. I've met some really great people and feel safe and comfortable there.
