LGBT Helping Hands 2/1/10-The Center Project (Myrtle Beach, SC)

The Center Project secured a location and opened its doors in June 2006. Using the Assessment Survey as a guide, the facility offers a multimedia library, open-air patio space, satellite cable, a lounge area, conference room, and a widely popular cyber center complete with printing and fax services.

Since its opening, The Center's housed a political candidates' forum, transgender support groups, confidential HIV testing, Alcoholics Anonymous, and various meetings of local GLBT groups. Talks and lectures from gay Christians, authors and other visionaries are common. It features monthly meet-and-greets, holiday parities and meals, picnics and benefits at area venues.

Groups for GLBT parents and a gay seniors group have formed. The Center has established ties with regional and national organizations, such as GLAAD, the South Carolina Equality Coalition, the National Association of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community Centers, StepUp! Community Volunteer Network and Careteam, the region’s AIDS service organization. And with both local and regional media watching, the Center has done all of this in the public.
