“There has been a longstanding vision for the creation of a vibrant home for our LGBTQ+ community that can be shared and enjoyed by everyone,” HPC Executive Director Elizabeth Schedl said in a statement.
“We’re so proud to open this state-of-the-art center where our community can gather, feel safe, get the care and services they need, and create lasting memories together.”
The ribbon cutting will take place at 3000 John F. Kennedy Blvd., Suite 306, on Thursday, December 8th at 12:30 p.m.
The new office consists of a 2,500-square-foot community center located in the heart of Journal Square, steps away from the Journal Square Transportation Center (PATH and Bus Stations), dining, and shopping businesses.
The space includes a large welcome & gathering space, restrooms, a kitchen & eatery, a conference & training room, private meeting rooms, staff offices, and a beautiful community space.
Furthermore, each room is designed in honor of, and dedicated to, an LGBTQ+ icon.
