The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) National Help Center, founded in 1996, is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization that provides vital peer-support, community connections and resource information to people with questions regarding sexual orientation and/or gender identity.

We run weekly moderated chat rooms for LGBT youth and teens to find support, acceptance and community.

We also maintain the largest collection of resources for the LGBT community in the United States, with 15,000 local resources for cities and towns across the country.

We are the oldest and most comprehensive national organization of its type and scope in the United States, providing this critically needed service regardless of age or geographic location. The people who turn to us for help often live in rural and conservative parts of the country and are frequently feeling severely isolated, closeted and despairing, with literally no one else else safe to talk to.



Lifelong AIDS Alliance

Lifelong has always been an organization that stands up for communities facing discrimination and marginalization.
In the 1980’s, elected officials and other local and national leaders displayed unspeakable cruelty and bigotry when they refused to support the services and research needed to combat the early surge of the HIV epidemic. A handful of volunteers witnessed their friends, partners, and neighbors neglected and left to die.

They were compelled to fight back, and mobilized the community to unite against injustice. They made a lifesaving difference in the lives of thousands through assembly of chore wheels, hospital visitation calendars, and the establishment of new non-profit organizations. They helped create us, Northwest AIDS Foundation, Chicken Soup Brigade and Evergreen Wellness Advocates, which became Lifelong.

National Organization for Women

The Seattle Chapter of the National Organization for Women was founded in 1970. Originally named the Seattle-King County Chapter, it was the 36th chapter of NOW chartered in the United States. The founders’ intent was to work “peacefully and within the system, through the courts, through all of the constitutional means available to effect the changes that our system has channels for.” In 1972 our then president, Elaine Day Latourell, expanded upon that intent by stating, “NOW is dedicated to working within the system and when that doesn’t work, to raising hell.” For 35 years Seattle NOW has not strayed from the commitment made by our founding mothers to pushing buttons, breaking barriers, and opening doors for women and girls.
