The WestCo Pride Project aims to make Westmoreland County a safe and welcoming community for everyone.
Persad Center's Community Safe Zone is building new LGBTQ-friendly alliances in Westmoreland County.
Persad Center helps organizations to create welcoming environments for LGBTQ consumers.
In March 2012, Persad Center received a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Health Bureau of Family Health Division to provide LGBTQ cultural competency training to agencies participating in the state's Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP).
Persad now certified to provide National Resource Center trainings on LGBT Aging.
Two training programs are available: one for LGBT groups to sensitize them to issues of ageism and the realities that LGBT individuals face when getting older. The second program is for individuals working the elderly or in aging services.
Screening at Melwood sees large community turnout.
Persad and SAGE (Services and Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Elders) and the Area Agency on Aging co-hosted a reception and screening of the critically-acclaimed documentary Gen Silent.
