Mid-Missouri's LGBTQ Community Center

The Center Project, a grassroots nonprofit organization, is Mid-Missouri’s only community center focused on the needs of the LGBTQ+ community.

Designed as a safe and open space, TCP supports the under-served sexuality and gender-based groups within the region, including youth, families, and those living in rural communities.


Many of our programs and events are virtual or postponed during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re in the process of updating the calendar – if in doubt about an activity, check with us on Facebook before you go.



The Center Project depends on community donations to keep our doors open. We gladly accept monetary donations as well as office supplies.
