Reviews for LGBT Center Of Raleigh Inc
The center is a great place to find information and resources for the LGBT community and allies.
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.
This center is one of the most welcoming places and helpful resources. The staff will drop everything to help people in need, they are always available to stop and talk to and are just some of the nicest people I've ever met.
This center is a wonderful educational resource and a great place to meet people and learn from other LGBT folks and allies.

I just wanted to let you know that I love our LGBT Center in Raleigh, NC for numerous reasons. The staff and volunteers are extremely knowlegable and friendly. I've participated in many of their programs such as their Friday Faith Forums, Transgender 101 and 102 classes, their Youth Coffee Houses, Game Night and Allies Group. There is always something to do at the center. Their library is huge and one is able to check out LGBT related books and DVDs.
One great aspect of the Center is that they have strong programs for transgender people while other LGBT groups sometimes think the "T" is silent. Their Monday "T-Time" allows time and space for transgender people to embrace their community and have "safe" discussions about issues facing them.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
My first interaction with the center came when I was new to the state. Not knowing anyone, I was nervous the first day I walked in, but have since found everyone to be incredibly helpful and welcoming.
I have volunteered here for over six months. I have many experiences with a variety of profits, and this is by far one the most welcoming and well organized that I have worked with. Both the staff and volunteers are personable and engaging. The Center offers a variety of programs and groups to meet the needs and wants of the LGBT and Ally community, and we hav a number of visitors from across the US.
I love volunteering and hanging out at the center. It's a warm, welcoming, and safe place for anyone. Great staff and programs to help you with wherever you are in your life journey.
