About The Center

The mission of The Center is to promote and empower the LGBT+ community and its allies through information, education, advocacy, and support.

The Center has been serving the Central Florida community since 1978. What started as a crisis hotline for gay men quickly shifted to a health and human services organization with the 1980s AIDS crisis. Now, more than 40 years later, The Center offers comprehensive HIV services, mental health counseling, social support and addiction recovery groups, and more. We have strong partnerships with over 30 community-based organizations.
