Welcome to the
Lighthouse Community Center!
Are you Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning (LGBTQ)? Are you an ally looking for ways to support inclusiveness and community? Are you new to California, the Bay Area or Hayward? Are you looking for resources, professional connections, social organizations, health centers, domestic violence or anti-bullying groups? Are you in need of housing referrals, a computer to seek jobs or build a resume? Or are you just looking for somewhere to sit, relax, and chat with others? Or maybe somewhere to get involved and volunteer your time and energy?
In that case, the Lighthouse Community Center (LCC) could be just what you’re looking for, and maybe you are just who we are looking for. So come listen to music, watch TV, check out the library, surf the web, have a cup of coffee, meet a friend, or just hang out…
The Center (LCC) serves Southern Alameda County, inclusive of San Leandro, Castro Valley, Hayward, Union City, Newark, Niles, Fremont, and beyond. Besides being a meeting and resource center (see services) that is available for use and rental by the community and others, we hold an annual fund-raiser, “Viva Las Vegas” as well as Movie-Nights, Young Adult gatherings, Wellness, Fitness, Health, Finance, Employment, Bullying, educational and recreational events through-out the year. We pull together and provide volunteers each year for San Francisco PRIDE. We work collaboratively with PFLAG, Lavender Seniors, GLOBE, the Hayward Stroll and other organization events. We are a member of the Hayward Chamber of Commerce. We offer speakers to requesting groups on a number of topics.
This is not ours, but your Center. The power that drives our Mission and Vision come from you. The vision of a brighter tomorrow is obtainable if we stand together, arm-in-arm, with PRIDE, a strong sense of self, with no apologies for who we are, and no compromise of how far we can go.
So give us a call, write, or stop by and visit with one of our volunteers. We are here for you, and hope you will come be with us!
