Our most popular program is The Q Center, a drop-in center for LGBTQ+ youth and their allies. Open on Friday nights from 6 to 9 p.m., we welcome youth aged 13 to 20. Activities include educational workshops, games, dances, art, field trips, support groups, and more! The Q Center is located at 7625 Central Valley Rd. NW in Bremerton. While we rent space under the same roof as the Family of God Lutheran Church, we are not a faith-based organization.

Transgender Drop-In is a support group for youth who identify as transgender, gender nonconforming, gender fluid, genderqueer, or any gender outside of the gender binary. The main objective of the group is to promote positive views of identity, increase feelings of empowerment, and decrease gender-related fears and feelings of isolation. The group has been successful in building a network of peer support and giving transgender youth an opportunity to discuss trans* related topics.
