Feel free to call us at (515) 277-7884. The LGBT Center was formed in 1984 to serve as a center for the LGBT community to come for information on support groups, social groups and other activities associated within our community.

As a Resource Center, we will be staffing the center with volunteers for people to stop in and get direction on where to go for their particular needs. The LGBT is always looking for volunteers to help staff the Center and help with special projects. If you would like to volunteer, please click on the link the the left for information on how you can help your community. We also have an extensive lending library, where you can check out books, periodicals and pick up some literature on different organizations.
