Reviews for CenterLink: The Community of LGBT Centers

Rating: 5 stars  

Centerlink is an incredibly supportive organization that is the unsung hero of the LGBTQ social service movement. Countless community centers around the world owe so much to this organization for their generous guidance, resources, and assistance. I speak for myself and my organization, Triangle Community Center, when I say THANK YOU CENTERLINK!

The technical assistance in the form of governance training is exceptional. Our board left better informed and more engaged as a result.

If I could give them 6 stars I would! The staff is incredible. The services and support they provide to LGBT organizations is instrumental in assisting leadership to best serve their respective communities. I couldn't do it without them.

Our facilitator, Terry Stone, was exemplary and his delivery of approaching what our organization brought him in to complete for us. I am the chairman of the board for NGPA.

A little over two years ago, I became the Executive Director of a small LGBTQ youth non-profit. I had very little experience specific to running the center. Centerlink was a life saver! The staff have always been there to give me the most professional and high quality support and advice; all with a smile and a great sense of humor.

CenterLink has been a true blessing for many of our LGBT Centers. Not only it creates networking opportunities but it truly educates and improves the quality of the service we provide and helps the overall idea of what a LGBT Center should be about. Thank you! Our little Center that could has already benefited from everything you provide and we continue to grow.

As a new Executive Director of a small and struggling rural LGBTQ Center, I needed a great deal of help to get my organization moving in the right direction. CenterLink was there for me every step of the way. Not only did their knowledgeable and accessible staff provide expert technical assistance, they also connected me with others in my field who readily offered help. From access to important decision makers in our field to free or low cost professional development opportunities, CenterLink provides it all. Everything they do is productive and designed to help build strong Centers to serve some of the most vulnerable populations in the country.

I would not change a thing internally. Externally, I'd try to figure out how to find them more funding! The more CenterLink grows, the safer, healthier, and more equal the LGBTQ communities become.
