Milwaukee LGBT Community Center

Milwaukee LGBT Community Center

The mission of the Milwaukee LGBT Community Center is to further develop our vibrant lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community in the greater Milwaukee area, thus improving the quality of life for all of us. The mission is supported by the Center’s leadership in community building, health promotion, advocacy, and communications. The Milwaukee LGBT Community Center believes in the goodness of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. As an organization, the Center seeks to foster community development and agency partnerships. The Center values leadership, both formal and informal, and it supports responsibility and accountability among individuals and organizations. To achieve its mission, the Center acknowledges the value of diversity and inclusion and of proactive and responsive communications. The Center understands that the LGBT community’s long-term quality of life requires the Center to prosper financially and develop organizationally to meet community needs. The Milwaukee LGBT Community Center delivers educational, health promotion, and community-building services that meet the needs of LGBT youth, adults, and their allies in the Greater Milwaukee area from its primary facility and other sites. The Center programs are developed with a consideration of community need, diversity, and inclusivity, community development, availability of resources, and the Center’s mission and vision.
