Join our Board of Directors

The Pacific Center is seeking motivated and engaged community members to serve on our Board of Directors! Potential candidates should be aligned with the Pacific Center's mission and vision to ensure that all LGBTQ community members have access to LGBTQ-proficient mental health services. This is an exciting time to join our board. With board and staff investment, we recently revised our strategic plan to lift up a focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), as well as accessibility.


The board helps track success regarding strategic plan goals, reviews other governance-related items to ensure the Center remains 501c3 compliant, and fundraises for the Center's programs. Board members are also ambassadors who speak about the Center's work in the community and ensure the maximum number of people know about the incredible services we provide, from our 20+ peer support groups to sliding-scale mental health services, to elder and youth programming, to HIV-related programs, to our DEI and LGBTQ safe space trainings. 


All candidates are welcome to express interest by emailing:
