OUR Work, YOUR Story

Because of supporters just like you, each week at the Pride Center of the Capital Region we welcome hundreds of people who find support and community! Our work engages those who want to take part in life-changing, and sometimes life-saving programs we offer.

Here are just a few stories of the lives you have touched with your generous support:

A mother and daughter - Mom brought her daughter to a youth dance. Mom had also attended our youth program when she was a teenager. Mom wanted her 11 year old daughter to experience the same warmth and support Pride Center youth programs offered to her years ago.

A Vintage Pride Member - An active member of our Vintage Pride program offered to make 75 phone calls to remind other Vintage Pride attendees of upcoming events. Some of the calls lasted 30 minutes or more, reaching far beyond the initial intent. This volunteer knew that sometimes his call the only contact the person had all day. Some people indicated they waited all month for his calls. His investment in the Vintage Pride program and the community immeasurably strengthened both. 

Inspired Youth - A young person who joined our Center Youth Action Team despite having parents who do not accept him. He now inspires other young people to be who they are despite adversity. 

Supper Sundays - Each month, one Pride Center volunteer spends an entire Sunday cooking and serving as host to a free community meal at the Pride Center. Because of him, hundreds of people have found community and friendship. They are nourished and enriched with food and fellowship. 

A Safe Space - A young transgender woman felt un-safe and consequently stopped going to high school. She felt she had to compromise her education despite a very vocal and affirming parent.  The Pride Center intervened along-side local county social services and the school district finally acted where previously it had done nothing.
