Build Our Center, also known as Our Center, was created when it was noticed that the LGBTQ community was in need of a place that provided programs, services, and resources. After several years of actively fundraising, holding events, and raising awareness, we have reached our goal of opening a community Center in Reno! Now we need your help to keep it going!
The community center, Our Center, is located at 1745 S. Wells Avenue. We provide open meeting space for community members, groups, and other nonprofits, in addition to holding programming and a youth drop-in Center. Our goal is to provide a space that can be utilized by all and become the hub of our community.
Funds donated to Build Our Center will go to support a variety of programming put on by the center for our youth, seniors, and LGBTQ community members.
The organization has a rich history of supporting and promoting community events since its inception. In 2013, the Youth Program was introduced. In July 2014, Northern Nevada Pride Festival was launched and held in downtown Reno, which continues to be held each year!

Our mission is to establish and maintain a safe, empowering, and supportive Center in northern Nevada that addresses advocacy, education and services for the LGBTQ community.
Our vision is to Build, Connect, and Strengthen the LGBTQ community to celebrate diversity and sustain a thriving, community-based organization for the empowerment and support of LGBTQ people and our allies in northern Nevada.
