THE LGBT+ CENTER ORLANDO, INC. EXPANDS TO KISSIMMEE

April 6, 2018 Orlando, Florida - The Board of Directors of LGBT+ Center Orlando, Inc. (The Center Orlando), today announced that through a generous grant from the Contigo Fund, an initiative of Our Fund Foundation, The Center Orlando will be expanding operations and opening an office in Kissimmee, Florida.

"Contigo Fund, which emerged from the Pulse massacre, recognizes the road to recovery continues and will for years to come,” says Contigo Fund Program Director Marco Antonio Quiroga. “We commend The Center Orlando for their remarkable leadership in the immediate recovery. An expansion of LGBTQ services and community spaces in Osceola County to support the predominantly Puerto Rican underserved community which half of the Pulse victims called home we see as critical to our mission. For all those directly and deeply affected by the Pulse massacre, it’s still very real. The trauma is still there. The disparities these LGBTQ communities of color face are deep and historic. The journey to healing and empowerment is a very long one. It’s not over. This is why The Center Kissimmee is so important.”

“The current grant of $26,148 brings us one step further in opening The Center Kissimmee,” said The Center’s Executive Director, George Wallace. “It is our goal to raise an additional $40,000 over the next few months so we may open a fully operational Center serving the greater Osceola area, in particular, the LatinX community.” The new location, yet to be announced, will house free HIV and Hepatitis C testing, local support groups, a cyber center and counseling services.

"We are very excited to expand operations with an LGBT Center in Kissimmee and look forward to serving Osceola County as a safe place that will mirror the Center Orlando by offering educational opportunities, support and clinical services", said Board President Jeff Buak.
