The Source LGBT+ Center

Our mission is to provide spaces within our communities for the LGBTQ+ population to learn, grow, belong, transform, question and support. Our vision is to cultivate new resources through advocacy, partnerships, and fundraising to unite and advance the LGBT+ community in Tulare & Kings Counties. The Source LGBT+ Center was established in 2016 and has since become the only LGBTQ+ center of its kind in the Central Valley. We provide HIV Preventative Services such as free testing, Ryan White housing & nutrition support, and ADAP assistance; Trans peer support, Trans events such as Trans Day of Visibility and Trans Day of Remembrance, and our Trans Closet; Youth programs such as our Leadership Academy and Youth Activities board; and we organize large community-wide events such as Pride Visalia, AIDS Walk Visalia, Drag Queen Bingo, and more.

Our goals for GivingTuesday are exposure, supporting other local organizations, end-of-year fundraising.
