LANCASTER – The OUTreach Center is inviting neighbors and supporters alike to an Open House at the Linda Verde Wellness Home this Saturday.
The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 22, at the Wellness Home, located at 44848 Rodin Avenue in Lancaster.
With gratitude to Antelope Valley Partners for Health, The OUTreach Center has begun programming for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning (LGBTQ) community, allies, and neighbors at their temporary home. Providing presentations at the Wellness Home is the OUTreach Center’s first step towards occupying a permanent building.
The Open House will include light refreshments, with a Game Night starting at 5 p.m.
Guests are welcomed to view the house, admire the beautiful décor sponsored by High Desert Medical Group, and stroll the large yard. The OUTreach Center will also receive proposals for community presentations.
The OUTreach Center provides support, services, and social activities to the LGBTQ community and allies of the Antelope Valley and its surrounding communities.
Since 2011, community involvement efforts have included AV PRIDE, National Coming Out Day, World AIDS Day, GSA and teacher training days, Transgender Day of Remembrance, and a three-time recipient of the Unite Lancaster Grants.
The organization features an award-winning youth group, The Out Project, which runs social, educational, and service projects every Saturday; a transgender support group, TransInteractions; Gen-X Over-40 Support network; and provides meeting space for the local chapter of PFLAG, Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays.
Reaching over 1,200 contacts through social networking and internet contacts, The OUTreach Center aspires to serve the needs of the Antelope Valley LGBTQ community.
The Wellness Home is open weekday afternoons, for community meetings, and by appointment.
