The City of Milwaukee Youth Council has awarded The Milwaukee LGBT Community Center $15,000 for its youth program – Project Q. One of six agencies to be awarded grants, the center will use the money to enhance existing resources and fund community service projects for LGBT youth.
“This grant is a sign of continued faith in the center’s programs,” said the organization’s co-president Paul Williams.
The center has reorganized following the abrupt departure of former executive director Maggi Cage, who left at a time when the center faced a deep budget deficit. With a strong new board and an outpouring of support from the community, the center has been forging ahead with new financial management, new hires and an increase in activities and visibility.
