The Center Project

The Center Project (TCP), located at 805 Fairview Ave in Columbia, Missouri is a grassroots nonprofit organization, and Mid-Missouri’s only community center focused on the needs of LGBTQ individuals and communities. Designed as a safe and open space, TCP supports the under-served sexuality and gender-based groups within the region, including youth, families, and those living in rural communities.

Our Mission

The Center Project’s mission is to provide resources and a safe space for LGBTQ individuals to meet, to play, and to grow. Our outreach focuses on youth, families, and people living in rural areas.

Like most organizations, we’re adjusting many of our programs and events to protect the health and safety of our community. Visit our COVID-19 guidelines for more information.
