Our Mission

To encourage, assist, heal and empower our LGBTQIA+ community through respect, advocacy, and passionate hearts to promote thriving in society.

What We Do

We provide services and training to support the LGBTQIA+ community

Our 501(c)(3) status not-for-profit organization is the first of its kind in the region, connecting the Northern Illinois LGBTQIA+ community with valuable resources as well as providing educational services to a number of schools, businesses, and organizations.

We are located in downtown Rockford, IL at 124 N. Water Street, Suite 303A.
