Our “Little Center that Could” needs a bigger space and construction permitted, we will be moving in early 2016. The actual date will be announced soon.

However, this Saturday, Dec. 12, the North County LGBTQ Resource Center is holding an open house and tour of the new currently-under-construction site, which is located at 3220 Mission Ave., in Oceanside.

The event will be held from noon – 4 p.m. and give interested parties an opportunity to see the floor plans, tour the new digs, help vote for design elements, and create an art tile and share in the excitement. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes!

You can also pre-order an art tile or a legacy brick and make yourself a part of the new Center in a physical, long-term way.

This is a family event, so kids and children are welcome. Hot chocolate and churros will be served and Santa will be paying a visit, as well.

Then, join us Dec. 19 at our current location, 510 N. Coast Highway, Suite C., Oceanside, for a holiday brunch from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. This is another family-friendly event filled with food, friends and fun.

We are currently looking for a Bilingual Case Manager. Please find the job posting on our website and apply if it sounds like what you are looking for. We are also seeking volunteers to work our front desk and need a volunteer coordinator. We also have a calendar on our website that offers a listing of many of our daily meetings and events.

The holidays and the end of the year are always a good time to consider donating to your favorite charities and nonprofits and the North County LGBTQ Resource Center would be honored if you considered us during this time of giving.

Please visit our website at to make a donation, sign up for our newsletter, view our calendar, or to locate any of the above job or volunteer opportunities.

Happy holidays and see you next year!
