The San Francisco LGBT Community Center is a nonprofit organization serving the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender population of San Francisco, California and nearby communities, located at 1800 Market Street in San Francisco.
Incorporated in 1996, the Center opened its solar-powered, 35,000-square-foot (3,300 m2) facility in 2002. Its mission is "to connect our diverse community to opportunities, resources and each other to achieve our vision of a stronger, healthier, and more equitable world for LGBT people and our allies." All of the Center’s direct services are available free of charge. Many are designed for community members most in need, including low-income, queer youth, job seekers, children and families, city newcomers, women and the transgender community.
The center has five primary areas of focus in which it works:
- Economic development
- Health and wellness
- Children, youth and families
- Community and police initiatives
- Arts and culture
The agency's annual budget is approximately $2 million. The Center's Executive Director Rebecca Rolfe leads a staff of 2 dozen staff members and a volunteer pool of over 800 individuals.
