Margaret-Ann’s Story

December 9, 2016

As an Aging member of the LGBTQ* community, Q Center provides a safe harbor where members of our community can gather for group activities, social support, public information, and other purposes.

Q Center fosters a welcoming environment where everyone is celebrated for who they are. I’m invested in Q because it is a space that offers the LGBTQ* communities wellness programs; arts, entertainment and cultural events; recovery, and family & youth support services.

Through Q Center we can connect and engage, find camaraderie and support. We can celebrate the vibrancy and growth of the LGBTQ* community. Q Center’s activities have important life benefits and participation is essential to quality of life as I age.

Successful aging is more likely when individuals are actively engaged in life & community. Q center provides one of the most accessible, friendly and inexpensive places that offer programs and services that promote active engagement and enjoyment of life by older adults.

As an active participant at Q Center I am grateful for the helpful information I receive, for increased knowledge, and learning new skills, which contribute to my continued independence. I also appreciate the professionalism of the staff and volunteers found at the center.

Why do I give my time to Q Center? Because it connects me to my community and peers, and because it’s a FUN thing to do!
