HealthLink at CenterLink advanced best and promising practices in tobacco control for LGBTQ individuals in my state by providing technical assistance, on-site cultural competency trainings for hospital systems, and resources for our state Department of Health and Senior Services to disseminate to LPHAs. The team at HealthLink is easy to reach and has great expertise in this area. With the help of HealthLink our midwest state is now taking on tobacco and cancer disparities among LGBTQ citizens.

As an executive director of a southern LGBTQ community center, i have found CenterLink membership to be invaluable. One of the most critical aspects is the support we have from CenterLink staff. Always present, always responsive. Always helpful. Another plus is having the entire membership on-call via email. Facing a problem? Email the membership and ask for thoughtful ideas and you shall receive! The annual leadership conference is also always well worth the investment to attend. The networking alone is worth the trip.

As Board President of an LGBT, I can attest to what an outstanding resource CenterLink is. Our Executive Director and Board members rely on CenterLink as a source of information on current LGBT topics and legislation. The network of centers is enormously helpful as we try to benchmark our own organization to others. Terry Stone, CEO, led a strategic planning workshop for our Board and did a fabulous job. His leadership and direction kept our Board members focused and ultimately resulted in a plan that our center can use to implement tangible improvements over the next three years.

My experience with Centerlink has been invaluable. The resources, expertise and mentorship offered have been the core strength to my organizations development.
I was recently a fortunate participant in their Executive Director Bootcamp. It was truly incomparable and I will be forever grateful for having had the experience.

I was fortunate enough to participate in CenterLink's ED Bootcamp recently and was blown away by the resources, support, and expertise offered by this organization. They provide a very needed and wanted service to LGBTQ+ centers across the country. Their resources are thoroughly vetted and based in best practices and are made easily accessible to utilize by the membership. I highly recommend CenterLink to my friends and colleagues doing LGBTQ+ work across the US.

CenterLink is the one organization investing time, talent and resources in community centers all across North America. The progress made by the LGBTQ movement is owed, in large part, to our friends at CenterLink.

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!
