The Gay and Lesbian Community Services Center of Orange County
The Gay and Lesbian Community Services Center of Orange County (The Center OC)
Established as a volunteer organization in 1971 and incorporated in 1975 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit community-based organization, The Center OC is one of the oldest gay and lesbian community centers in the United States.
Senior Support Services
Our senior services program ensures that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning elders have equal access to benefits, protections, services and institutions. Activities are conducted within a context of awareness and acceptance, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or cultural affiliation. Our support services include advocacy, mental health counseling, referrals to support services, and HIV testing and education.
Senior Socialization Programs
The Center OC offers a safe space for LGBT seniors to make new friends and connect to the community. We enjoy many cultural events such as outings to the theater, museums, films, and lectures. Our Senior Socials promote health education and well-being by encouraging seniors to participate in socialization programs at The Center.
