Through the vision, dedication and hard work of our supporters, the North County LGBTQ Resource Center became a reality in November 2011. We will bring together to collaborate ideas, share resources, and extend our profile in our community. We envision the Resource Center as a visible symbol of the LGBT community in North County San Diego. The Resource Center will offer support, build, educate, and improve the relationships of the LGBT community and our friends and allies. Services include support groups for the youth, seniors, military service members, HIV/AIDS testing and prevention, counseling, civil rights advocacy, classes and workgroups.
Friendship Clubhouse strives to create a safe, supportive environment that is sensitive to each member’s unique needs. Friendship Clubhouse focuses on socialization, social and independent living skills enhancement, wellness and recovery, recreation and vocational rehabilitation. The goal of Friendship Clubhouse is the empowerment of members to re-establish their normal roles in the community and to successfully re-integrate into community life through active participation in the planning and achievement of their personal recovery goals. Friendship Clubhouse members can choose how often they attend the program and in which activities they participate. Membership in the program is not a prerequisite to attend program activities or benefit from its services.
San Diego Regional Center believes that access to information, supports and learning is necessary for all people to achieve their life goals.
