Mission Statement

The Pride Center of Greater Youngstown aims to promote community development and a sense of security among gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning people in the Mahoning Valley through social, educational, and support programs and the establishment of a safe place for these programs to take place. This community center, where GLBTQ persons and their non-gay allies may meet on common ground and without disguise, is organized and operated exclusively to educate and reduce prejudice and discrimination between the LGBTQ and heterosexual communities—and to relieve the effects of such prejudice and discrimination.”
