Coastal Bend Pride Center

The Coastal Bend Pride Center is a cornerstone for the LGBTQIA+ community in the Corpus Christi area and beyond, offering an inclusive safe space and a variety of crucial services. Established as the first and only LGBTQIA+ community center south of San Antonio, the Pride Center extends its reach to 12 counties within the Coastal Bend region. It focuses on nurturing a supportive environment through its social and support groups tailored to diverse needs, including those of youth, families, and the wider LGBTQIA+ population.

The Center’s dedication to mental health is evident in its counseling services, which cover a spectrum from individual to family therapy. They have a commitment to supporting the community's well-being, both mental and physical, with health screenings, HIV/STD prevention and education, and offering connections to LGBTQIA+-friendly healthcare providers.

Education and empowerment are also key missions of the Pride Center. They provide educational resources and training, aiming to increase LGBTQIA+ cultural competency and history awareness. The Pride Center actively hosts and organizes community events and programming to foster learning, networking, and advocacy for LGBTQIA+ rights and well-being.

Furthermore, the Pride Center's involvement goes beyond providing services. They engage in community outreach and education to the general public and health providers, ensuring a broader impact for their advocacy and support initiatives.

In essence, the Coastal Bend Pride Center stands as a beacon of hope, resources, and community for the LGBTQIA+ population in the Coastal Bend region, making it an invaluable asset to the area. It's a place where health, wellness, education, and advocacy intersect to support and elevate the lives of the LGBTQIA+ community and their allies.
