Safe Space for the LGBTQIA+ Community

RainbowSD

Life throws a lot at us sometimes. Navigating the twists and turns brought on by school, friends, work or health issues can sometimes leave us in a place that we don’t want to be. If you are feeling lonely, frustrated or uncertain about the future it’s okay to reach for a helping hand. The Helpline Center is dedicated to getting you back on track and heading towards hope.

While existing in the LGBTQIA+ spectrum doesn’t automatically mean extra challenges get thrown in the mix, it does create potential for additional stressful situations to pop up. That’s why the Helpline Center has committed to being a Safe Space, to allow you to be who you are and not feel judged by it.

We’re here to support our community, we’re here to support you.
