We are so grateful for the overwhelming outpouring of support for our LGBTQ community members both in Orlando, as well as here in Cleveland. In order for us to manage all of the requests for support, we are directing people to both weareorlando.org as well as equalityohio.org to have their events listed, and we will continue to post requests on our social media as they arise. If the event is in support of The LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland, please contact our Community Relations Coordinator, Ryan Zymler, with information about the event time, date, and location, as well as whether or not you would like to have a Center representative present at the event. You can reach Ryan at RZymler@lgbtcleveland.org or by phone at 216-651-5428 x 106.
It’s official, The Center is moving to brand new digs in the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood. We’ll have triple the programming space and double the fun. Learn more.

A Place For Us
“A Place For Us,” Cleveland’s new LGBT senior housing development will be accepting applications starting June 2016. “A Place For Us” includes fifty-seven 1 and 2 -bedroom apartments, and a first floor “Hub” which will serve as the facilities’ social and educational center. This is an exciting development for our community as Cleveland becomes one of only a small number of housing developments in the U.S. serving the LGBT community. Stay tuned for Grand Opening plans and activities! For specific information about “A Place For Us,” call Linda Krasienko at (440) 227-8556.

The Center Receives Largest
Donations in its History
The Center has received a 1.8 million dollar donation from an anonymous donor, the largest donation in the Center’s nearly 40-year history. The purpose of the donation is for the Center to purchase and renovate a new facility and increase staffing and program capacity. In addition, The Milton and Tamar Maltz Family Foundation has committed a $500,000 matching grant in support of a new endowment fund to provide for maintenance, upkeep and renovation of the new facility.
The LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland is proud to acknowledge two new partnerships that will have a lasting impact on the Cleveland LGBT community.
The endowment fund will be an enduring legacy that will provide community members the opportunity to ensure the sustainability of the Center. Up to $500,000 will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Maltz Family Foundation until December 31, 2016.
