WINDSOR, ON - Windsor Pride Community Centre will be moving south up Ouellette Avenue come July 3rd. The exciting decision to move the organization that aims to educate and increase public awareness of the LGBT+ community , was decided this week when Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare (HDGH) leadership and community partners suggested part of its currently owned 1106 Ouellette building as a temporary new home.
"We are grateful to our collaborative partner at HDGH for realigning and supporting the needs of the LGBT+ community. Both organizations have a strong commitment to the health and wellness of everyone in Windsor/Essex whether it is to the mind, body or both," explained Bob Williams, Windsor Pride Community Centre/Consultant.
The new Windsor Pride Community Centre location will allow its current programs and services to remain downtown where they are easily accessible to their client base.
"Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare is very pleased to be working with the Windsor Pride Community Centre during this important period of transition" states HDGH Board Chair Shari Cunningham. "Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare and Windsor Pride Community Centre share many of the same values placing community first and ensuring timely and convenient access to programs and services."
Windsor Pride Community Centre has experienced significant growth in its 8 year existence in the Downtown Core. The strong and vibrant not-for-profit organization driven by committed volunteers work for, and embrace, the entire LGBT+ community and its allies, no matter a person's gender, race, culture, creed, age, ability, orientation, economic status or affiliation.
Programming will continue during the next few weeks of the transition but may take place at an alternate location. Clients are encouraged to check www.windsorpride.com as arrangements are made.
