Building Community Among LGBTQ Persons & Their Allies Through Social Opportunities, Health & Wellness Services & Awareness Programs

We are a distribution SPOT for Pink Spots, the resource directory for the LGBT Community in the SF Bay Area

The Rainbow Community Center (RCC) is the only organization in Contra Costa County that is solely focused on serving the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) community; our current priorities are to build services for LGBT youth, seniors, people living with HIV/AIDS and to develop community building efforts that will diminish the sense of isolation and promote greater acceptance of all LGBTQ people.

Our goal is to provide a safe, supportive and respectful environment for LGBTQ people of all ages, socio-economic status, races, cultures and religions. We strive to create services and activities that will promote the mental, physical and spiritual well-being of our community by providing professional services, peer support, referral services, social opportunities and educational programs of interest to our community as well as to the community at large.

Vision Statement
The Rainbow Community Center of Contra Costa County envisions a society that embraces acceptance, safety and equality for all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Mission Statement
The Rainbow Community Center of Contra Costa County (RCC) builds community and promotes well-being among Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning (LGBTQ) people and our allies.

Hours
We are open Monday-Friday, 1-6pm for office hours and drop-ins (programs and events may occur on weekends and before/after office hours). Come by to socialize with others, use our free wi-fi. Events and calendar can be found on our Facebook page and on Meetup.

History
The Rainbow Community Center of Contra Costa County began in 1992 as a satellite office of the Berkeley-based Pacific Center and became an independent nonprofit organization in 1996. Our programs are designed to promote community involvement through volunteerism and service.

Our Service Aim
RCC fills a unique need by providing a safe, clean and sober space for LGBTQ people to interact, network, and become active members of the community. RCC offers many programs and services that benefit the physical and mental health of the LGBTQ community, but the importance of social activities to the well-being of LGBTQ people cannot be understated. Social support reduces the sense of isolation and depression for LGBTQ people and promotes pride and self esteem and creates a sense of community in a space free of homophobia.
