When The North County LGBTQ Resource Center first found a place to call home in December 2011, we already knew that we’d soon outgrow our cute little space.

A federal grant from the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) made this move possible and soon our new space, which is in need of renovation, will begin to take shape, with a move date of Nov. 1 expected.
