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.

"While World AIDS Day was formed to be a global day of recognition to increase awareness and prevention efforts, it is also the perfect occasion to create more AIDS activists to enlist in the fight. If we’ve learned anything, it’s that it is critical for us to take care of each other." #WorldAIDSDay #HonoringThoseLost

“I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self. I’ve been endlessly inspired by so many in the trans community.”

Today is Giving Tuesday and the start of the CoMO Gives campaign! Would you consider making a donation to support your local volunteer-run LGBT organization?

Not sure how much to donate?
- $30 would allow us to purchase a chest binder for an individual who may otherwise use unsafe methods

- $100 would allow us to provide an inclusivity training to a local business free of charge

- $250 would help support us in a possible purchase of a new, larger building in 2021

The campaign runs through December 31 but don't wait until the end! We thank you for your support!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Even if it’s just over zoom (be safe out there please!), it’s really hard to be around family when you’re not out to them yet. Here are some ideas for how to approach it ... ❤️
