The Q Centers at ACR Health are safe spaces for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning youth, their families, and allies to gather, share, and receive support. Q Center programming promotes equality, celebrates diversity, provides resources that cultivate pride and leadership skills, and strives to create a safe and inclusive community for all.

Through our programs and services, we provide the guidance and support LGBTQ+ youth, young adults and their families need to thrive, and the foundation from which LGBTQ+ youth can succeed throughout their lives.

The Q Centers offer:

  • Social support groups for LGBTQ+ youth and families
  • Afterschool and drop-in programs
  • Case Management for LGBTQ+ youth
  • Free LGBTQ-affirming testing for HIV and STDs
  • Field Trips and special events
  • School-based GSA support and education
  • Independent Living Skills workshops
  • LGBTQ Cultural Competency/Responsiveness workshops
  • Advocacy and support for parents of LGBTQ+ children/youth
  • Educational awards and emergency assistance through Eddie’s Future Greatness Awards
