teazled Lgbtq greeting cards - now for sale at the center oc!
The Center OC is now offering traditional holiday cards for the non-traditional family so you might also be able to celebrate those meaningful moments, express your innermost thoughts and communicate with those you love and cherish.
At The Center, we understand that non-traditional families share the same traditional bonds of love and respect. We appreciate the desire of all people to convey their feelings to those they hold dear. Greeting cards are a vital means of communication that touch lives, as they distinctly identify thoughts, words and actions.
For information on how to pick up your greeting cards for this holiday season, click here!

the new queer faith forum - now meeting twice monthly
Brian and Jeff, both gay men of faith, co-facilitate The New Queer Faith Forum at The Center OC. They share their stories of faith and help you explore your faith journey as LGBTQ people. This isn't "church", but some have described it as a faithful interfaith group of fabulous people coming together in fellowship and commonality seeking partnership in their walk of faith.

Connect to center services and community members!
If so, POW! is the place to make that happen. Programming and Outreach Workforce (POW!) is The Center OC's new hub for connecting volunteers to Center services and to one another.
There are already several new projects that POW! is working on, including painting a vibrant mural on the inner walls of The Center's parking space. Several interest groups are forming as well, focusing on activities such as gardening and hiking.
support the center without breaking the bank
Get on the bandwagon and join The Center Orange County's 20.15 Club -- a giving club that contributes to our goal of paying off the mortgage of our permanent home in Santa Ana. You can help ensure a bright future for Orange County's LGBT community with just $20.15 a month!
When you pledge $20.15 a month through the year 2015, you'll bring us nearly $1,000 closer to reaching our goal of retiring the mortgage. Click here for more information on how you can help!
