More safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youth
The Uplift Outreach Center’s mission is to provide much needed safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youth and young adults in the Spartanburg and surrounding areas.
The Uplift Outreach Center is the Upstate’s first LGBTQ+ youth center.
The space is located inside Fernwood Baptist Church. The center is separate from the church with its own entrance, restrooms, and gathering spaces. This includes a kitchen, foosball, pool table and other areas where youth can come to find support, do homework and participate in after-school socialization in a safe, welcoming space.
Entrance is located at the back of Fernwood Baptist Church of Greengate Lane.
Every Tuesday and Saturday there will be meetups from 3:30 pm-6:30 pm at the center. For more information visit: https://upliftoutreachcenter.org/ or contact (864) 381-7234
