The Immigration Program at the SF LGBT Center is a pilot program funded by Equality California with grants from the Haas, Jr. Foundation and Four Freedoms Fund. The Center joins four other collaborative partners across the state in an effort to educate the LGBT community about the relevance of immigration issues to their lives and well-being. The Program also aims at improving immigration services access for LGBT people who need them and to strengthen alliances between the LGBT movement and the immigration reform movement across California.
The overarching vision for our Program is to develop a rich - Information & Referral (I&R) resource – comprising know-how, informational and outreach materials, and well-established partner relationships – that is equipped to provide comprehensive, knowledgeable referral and follow-up for LGBT immigrants in the Bay Area seeking legal and ancillary services. The Program will also provide an opportunity to create a program development and implementation strategy that will inform development of the I&R program overall as we seek to deepen our resources in other areas. In order to achieve this vision, the Center has committed to the program objectives and activities detailed below.
