I was only able to volunteer briefly with MGLCC, but during my time there, I was so honored to be a part of a community that cares so greatly about the people it serves - whether they are regular visitors or whether it is someone's first time walking through the doors. MGLCC gives people an opportunity to be themselves, to feel supported and valuable regardless of where they come from and what others have told them. Every person has a role and a story to tell, and MGLCC allowed people to share those stories. I am not homosexual, and confess that I was nervous about whether others would question why I wanted to volunteer, but my fears were put to rest within 2 seconds of being there. The center is about loving and accepting others, and I'm a big fan of that. I think MGLCC is one of Memphis' greatest assets.
