Grand Re-Opening: Our Coming Out
We are thrilled to announce the grand re-opening of the Pacific Center for Human Growth at our new location! Our doors will once again be open to welcome you back. Join us Friday, October 13, 2023, 5:30 - 8 PM, as we celebrate the strength and resilience of our community. Our new address is: Pacific Center for Human Growth 2130 Center Street, Suite 200 Berkeley, CA 94704
Accepting Donations: Clothes for Our Gender Affirming Closet and Book Donations Our community is stronger when we have access to essential resources. We are accepting donations of new clothes for our Gender Affirming Closet and books for our community library. If you have gently used clothes in perfect condition or clothes with tags still on, we'd love to hear from you. Please arrange a meeting with our volunteer coordinator Kitty/Venessa at email@example.com to review your donation. Similarly, if you have books you'd like to contribute to our library, please contact us to set up a meeting for book donations.
