In February 2017, a group of dedicated volunteers from across the county and from all walks of life—including church congregations, social services agencies, and the community-at-large—officially launched the Lorain County LGBTQ+ and Allies Community Task Force now known as LGBTQ+ Lorain County. Through personal networks and a needs assessment, the organization determined the high level of need for:

  • LGBT-friendly primary health care and mental health services
  • Cultural competency training for health care providers, law enforcement officials school teachers, and employers in the County
  • Increased visibility of local LGBT-identified people, and targeted social programming
  • Partnerships with local business establishments to ensure safe and welcoming environments for LGBT people
  • Support for LGBT groups and students at area public schools
  • Systematic data collection on the needs and struggles of LGBT persons living in Lorain County to inform future interventions and granting
  • Collecting life stories from LGBT Lorain County residents to be archived
  • Advocacy for employment protection policies for public employees who are LGBT identified
  • Advocacy for anti-discrimination housing protections for LGBT people

LGBTQ+ Lorain County is the first organized group of its sort and has already made strides in connecting LGBT people from the County to one another, organizing fundraisers and educational events, and networking with larger LGBT groups in the northeast Ohio region. Your generous contribution to LGBTQ+ Lorain County will be used to support the organization, programs, and initiatives that benefit the LGBT community. As contributor, you demonstrate your commitment to equality and diversity in Lorain County.
