The Center- The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender Community Center

Center Families welcomes LGBTQ, couples, parents, prospective parents who are single or coupled, and families. Center Families provides cutting edge individual/couples & family counseling, support groups, information and referrals as well as play dates, and other networking opportunities for LGBTQ families in the Tri-State area. Center Families also supports the needs of binational couples, as they face unique barriers and threats to their families due to current discriminatory immigration laws that deny same sex partners the right to sponsor their partner for residency applications in the US.
