About Us

Our Mission

The Community Center’s mission is to provide an inviting and safe facility for the use of all LGBT and allied community organizations and individuals.


Founded in December 1983, The Community Center (TCC) is the only SW Idaho lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) and allied community center. TCC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The Center, located only a few blocks off Chinden Blvd at 305 E 37th Street in Garden City, is just minutes from downtown Boise.

We at TCC are proud of publishing for 25 years the Diversity newspaper, which is distributed throughout Idaho on a monthly basis; this makes Diversity one of the longest-running LGBT-focused newspapers in the Western United States. You will find at our facility an ever-growing library containing books, CD's, and videos that focus on the issues, lives, history, and concerns of our community. We also have a comfortable TV lounge and meeting area that is available for use by both individuals and groups.

TCC is committed to uniting the community through educational and developmental programs with the express intent of not duplicating activities of other organizations. TCC also acts to provide much needed services, resources, referrals and support that would otherwise not be available to the LGBT community.
