About us

The Billy DeFrank Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBTQ) Community Center strengthens communities by developing diverse resources that empower lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their allies. We provide a range of services to youth, families, adults and seniors.

The scope of these resources is unique in the greater San Jose area. Each month, over a thousand people visit the Billy DeFrank Center, and many more call our Information & Resources number, from as far away as Foster City and Gilroy.

The Center was founded in 1981 in a two-room storefront. In 1994, the Billy DeFrank Center became a member agency of the United Way of Santa Clara County. In 1998, the Center began receiving funding from Santa Clara County Social Service Agency.

A capital campaign resulted in the construction of yet a new facility. At its grand opening in June 2004, San Jose Mayor Ron Gonzales spoke, citing the Center as "an invaluable resource for people in our community."
