Check out the programs and resources for men at The Center

Dear Center Community, 

The Center is proud to offer targeted resources to all members of the LGBTQ community and today we focus on the wide variety of programming for men and the issues that impact their lives. During the pandemic and over the last year, we’ve seen increased instances of isolation and our online Support & Discussion Groups are a safe place for men to gather, to discuss issues including the struggles of the pandemic, meet others, and socialize. Many men who have never considered joining a group have found a real sense of community, support, and connection during these difficult times.


The Center offers many Support & Discussion Groups specifically for men including the Men’s Social Discussion Group - a place to socialize and participate in conversations on current events; the Men’s Coming Out Discussion Group - a safe place for straight, gay, bi, or trans men anywhere in the process of coming out; Heal Thy Soul - an empowerment group for Black men; and the Prostate Cancer Support Group - a place for support and encouragement from men who are experiencing, or have experienced, the same health issue; and more.

 The Center also offers critical health and social-support services, referrals, and collaborations with other agencies, for issues that specifically impact men. We provide connections to Behavioral Health Services for individual and group counseling sessions, connections to housing resources and rental assistance funds, HIV prevention, testing, and support, as well as critical Food Resources and programs including twice-monthly food banks and Non-Perishable food delivery every Tuesday. If you, or someone you know, would like more information on the Men's Programs at The Center, contact men@thecentersd.org. These groups are always looking to expand, so please see more information on groups on our website and below, and consider reaching out and connecting with other men in the community.


We continue to provide Emergency Services during the pandemic - for more information, please call 619.800.4252 from 9am - 4pm or 619 800.4216 from 4pm - 9pm or email frontdesk@thecentersd.org.


If you are able to donate so that we are able to continue our Emergency Services for men and all of our community members, please visit https://thecentersd.org/giving/

In community,
