At the beginning of June we announced our new Strategic direction and the four priorities that will guide our work for the next three years. As we celebrate Pride Month here at Center on Halsted, and throughout Chicago in June, we will continue to introduce you to our direction and the bold plans that will get us there.


Center on Halsted will ensure the health and wellbeing of LGBTQ people through its wellness and lifespan offerings.

At Center on Halsted, ensuring health and wellbeing goes beyond being a community bedrock in times of need. It means serving as a site of celebration during the good times and one of empowerment in times of need. Our programs and services must remain relevant, accessible, and holistic in order to fulfill this promise.

Over the next three years we will expand programming to meet emerging needs, fully informed by the LGBTQ community and our allies, focused on the areas of LGBTQ youth, LGBTQ family, and transgender populations.

As we implement the priorities throughout our work, we invite you to join us!

Center on Halsted is the Midwest’s largest community center dedicated to advancing the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Movement.
