DENVER LGBTQ+ ORGANIZATIONS
GLBT COMMUNITY CENTER OF COLORADO
The Center opened in 1976 and over the years has grown to become the largest community center in the Rocky Mountain region, giving voice to Colorado’s LGBT community and playing a pivotal role in statewide initiatives to reduce harassment and discrimination. Today, we are focused on fulfilling our mission – To engage, empower, enrich, and advance the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community of Colorado – by ensuring that every member of the LGBT community has access to the programs and resources they need to live happy, healthy, and productive lives. The Center currently operates on an annual budget of $2.2 million, employs 19 staff members, and utilizes more than 520 community volunteers to serve more than 46,000 people each year.
Urban Peak is the only non-profit organization in Denver that provides a full convergence of services for youth ages 15 through 24 experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of becoming homeless. Our goal is to help these youth overcome real life challenges and become self-sufficient adults. We do this by providing five essential services at little or no cost to the youth: an overnight shelter, a daytime Drop-In Center, Street Outreach, Education & Employment programming, and Supportive housing. Urban Peak isn’t LGBT exclusive but is LGBT Safe.
