The Spahr Center is Marin County’s only non-profit community agency devoted to serving, supporting and empowering the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community and everyone in the county living with and affected by HIV. Guided by our mission, our Board of Directors, staff, volunteers, supporters and donors work together to achieve our vision of Marin as a healthy, inclusive community where every person lives with freedom and equality.

Who We Serve


We’re here to support and empower LGBTQ+ youth with outreach, drop-in groups, counseling, and information and referral. Have a question? Want to volunteer? Need some support? Call us!!


All LGBTQ+, HIV-positive and affected adults are welcome, safe and supported at The Spahr Center.


Seniors are a big part of The Spahr Center. Our LGBT senior community is large and active and we also work with lots of seniors who are long-term survivors of HIV/AIDS. We welcome one and all!


Families of all kinds are part of The Spahr Center community. We offer support, counseling, education and consultation for parents and families of all ages.

Why We Matter

“We all want to fit in. And belong somewhere. As the parent of a gender fabulous teenager, I went in search of other parents who had insight, wisdom, and firsthand knowledge of my situation. At the end of the rainbow, I found my tribe: the parent support group at The Spahr Center. Spahr is a sacred place that offers unconditional support, insightful wisdom, shared laughter and life-saving information…”
