About the Center
The Pride Center of New Jersey, Inc. is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the health and well-being of all individuals in the LGBTQ community. The Center is a safe space to gather together, and so much more. Here, we celebrate who we are as individuals and as a community. Here we find comfort in unity. In this place, we accept who we are and how far we have come in the fight for equal rights. Here we continue to fight for equality.
Everyone in the LGBTQ community and their allies are welcome at The Center. We have a wide range of programming to meet the needs of those who seek us out. We encourage anyone interested in learning about The Center to check out our calendar and stop by and attend a group or meeting.
As a non-profit organization, we operate solely on membership funds, donations from the public and supportive organizations. All contributions go directly to benefit LGBTQ youth and other programs, and are tax-deductible.
We believe every individual can embrace who they are,
define their future, and change the world.
The mission of The Pride Center is to provide a safe and welcoming space for all individuals who identify as LGBTQ to find support, educational tools, health and education resources, and social opportunities within a community of acceptance. Comprehensive programming in support of this mission includes lesbian, gay, trans and family resources, social groups and free HIV testing.
Friendship - that creates social opportunities and allows people to live their fullest lives.
Community – that celebrates our history and a culture that continues to evolve.
Equality – in cultivating an environment of acceptance for future generations.
