Gay and Lesbian Community Center receives large donation to help youth

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Feb 11, 2014

The Gay and Lesbian Community Center has received a $250,000 donation from the Elaine P. Wynn & Family Foundation.

The funds will be used to add critical new services to the organization's QVolution youth program, which works to nurture the well-being, identities and experiences of LGBTQ youth in Southern Nevada.

The donation will help the center offer more individual and group therapy and to purchase a 15-passenger van so that the center can transport youth without access to transportation to the center.

In addition, the van will be used to transport youth on field trips and events and to the college campuses in town.

The Center's QVolution program is the only program in the state of Nevada that provides services specifically for LGBTQ youth.
