Review for CenterLink: The Community of LGBT Centers, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The LGBT community center "movement" is a sometimes forgotten community. CenterLink is our main, national organization that provides support and advice to the 100+ local LGBT organizations scattered all over the country. Sometimes we have paid staff, somtimes we are just volunteers raising enough money to pay the phone bill. We all provide resources and services to LGBT people . Thanks CenterLink

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

the increased professionalism and resources for LGBT community centers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

be thrilled.

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

the quick way they always respond to requests for advice and help.

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

other leaders of LGBT organizations who are willing to share their best practices.

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

help thousands of LGBT homeless youth and forgotten LGBT seniors. We have communitis within our communities who have been long forgotten and thrown on the streets.

Ways to make it better...

I had the time to access more of their work.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the fact that so many LGBT people do not support their community centers. They don't think they "need them." The centers have the staff and boards that are fighting for our rights. Yes, we all need community centers. At least right now.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this work is vital.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
