In the past few years, the Milwaukee LGBT Community Center has made major efforts to become the hub of our community's LGBT organizations, offering to share key resources like fundraising tools, databases, volunteer management systems, and the like. This is helping all of us better serve our constituents.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

a more cohesive LGBT community.

As a volunteer for the Milwaukee LGBT Community Center Anti-Violence Project (AVP) I have had the opportunity to witness first-hand the importance of advocacy and support being offered to LGBTQA-identified victims of violence. I recently participated in the Pridefest outreach for the AVP where over 775 peace flags were created by various community members passing through the Health & Wellness Area of the festival. It was touching and meaningful to volunteer with such an organization dedicated to making positive connections in our community and in turn significantly shaping the lives of LGBTQ-people.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

lives of young people (ages 24 and under) through Project Q, people living with HIV, people seeking to find LGBTQ-friendly social services and LGBTQ-friendly community referrals, people looking to make a difference in the LGBTQA-community of Milwaukee.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the friendly and caring nature of the staff. The openness to making change a positive experience for as many individuals as possible. The willingness to go the extra mile to make sure LGBTQ-folks feel welcome, cared for, appreciated and respected.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, creative, engaging, personable, thoughtful, caring, kind-hearted and compassionate.

Welcoming Youth Program for LGBT youth houses a number of adult based LGBT organizations, good collaboration efforts with those organizations. Home of two choirs and Pridefest Milwaukee.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the youth they serve.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

hard working, creative and welcoming staff.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Fun!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

give more options for the inner city youth they serve, build a new building, have a garden and a kitchen on site to teach kids how to cook. There is dire need for more meeting space during the week and space for youth to run around and maybe a garden.
