Outreach Center Name Submission

Fields with an (*) are required.

We need your help naming the future Upstate LGBTQ Outreach Center.

PFLAG Spartanburg is working to launch and establish a future LGBTQ+ Outreach Center in the Upstate of South Carolina. While the center will have a heavy focus on youth resources it will also provide a safe space and various health and community related resources for LGBTQ+ individuals of all ages, backgrounds and demographics. Our focus is to provide an easily accessible safe space within our community where LGBTQ+ youth who have been abandoned, isolated and ostracized from their homes, churches and schools can find fellowship, peace, acceptance and help. We hope “The Outreach Center” will become a model for similar locations across the Upstate and South Carolina.
