The goal of this year’s fundraising campaign is to raise $2,000 to help outfit the Community Center with equipment (tables, chairs, phones, computers, etc.), which will also be available for community members to utilize.
We are shooting to secure a space by June 2015, shortly before the 2nd Annual Northern Nevada Pride Festival and Community Pride Parade on July 25, 2015! We are excited to be so close to finally opening a safe and accepting space for the community to enjoy!
We could not have gotten to this point without all of your support over these last few years. Dollar by dollar, we have finally achieved our goal of having enough funding to open and sustain an LGBT Community Center here in Northern Nevada. We would like to sincerely thank you for all you have done, and we hope you will consider supporting Build Our Center by giving big here on March 12th!
With your support and that of our first sustaining donors, RockCares: The Norris-Rocaberte Family Foundation, we will soon be opening a Community Center for all Northern Nevadans.
Join with us and help reach our goal!
We are a CommUNITY. We need a Center.

Our Homies Youth Group is still thriving.
Our goal is to meet 2 times a month and work together on a Community Project or explore something new in Washoe County. If you would like more information, visit us on Facebook!
We are testing out a new way to communicate. If you are between 12-24 and would like updates on the Homies — Text EZIZU36959 To: 313131.
If it works out then we will customize it and build our group this way. Tell your friends.

The Homeless Youth Count concluded on January 30th.
Build Our Center and Nevada Youth Empowerment Project had over 70 Volunteers show up to make the count possible. This doesn’t include the dozens of people and businesses that donated to help these young people get the necessities they need while living in precarious situations. This year we partnered with RISE to run the Free Market on site. Food Bank of Northern Nevada, Northern Nevada Hopes were also on site to provide signups for programs and testing.
We were very lucky this year as the weather was nice which brought out more people than last year. We will post the full results of the Survey as soon as they have been analyzed and returned to us. We counted 75 young people this year between 18-24. This was one of the highest turnouts. We already have ideas of how to improve the count next year and plan to include some more mobile outreach to the areas of town that make transportation complicated. Thank you to all who participated, donated or supported this annual count!
