Offering support. Building community. A second GLBT community center for Long Island.
“This is the only place where
I can really be myself.”
We hear this sentiment all the time. GLBT people say The Center at Bay Shore has been a safe space and lifeline of support. The Network is committed to providing services to everyone on Long Island, and making those services accessible has been identified as one of the largest needs. By opening a center in Nassau County we are addressing the issue of accessibility and convenience for all of Nassau County, especially its GLBT youth.
For 16 years, The Center at Bay Shore has been the only permanent home for the GLBT community on Long Island. And with the need for services increasing exponentially (500% over the last ten years), it is now time to ensure that GLBT people living in Nassau County have more access to support and a safe space.
The Center at Garden City is an 8,800 square-foot suite located within a modern glass building adjacent to Roosevelt Field Mall on Ring Road, providing unparalleled access via public transportation. The facility offers a large Great Room, Conference Rooms, two Group Meeting Rooms, a Community Services Room, two Counseling and Consultation Meeting Rooms, and Youth Lounge in addition to space for staff offices.
