The LGBT Life Center is a trusted leader that empowers the LGBTQ communities and all people affected by HIV through improving health and wellness, strengthening families and communities, and providing transformative education and advocacy. They have been empowering Hampton Roads' LGBTQ & HIV communities for over 30 years.
In 1989, two agencies—CANDII (Children’s AIDS Network) and Full Circle AIDS Hospice Support—worked to better the community and help those affected by HIV/AIDS in Hampton Roads. Then in 2006, both agencies merged to become ACCESS AIDS Care. Five years later, ACCESS AIDS Care, together with leading LGBT advocates, opened The LGBT Center of Hampton Roads. Then in 2017, the organizations rebranded to the LGBT Life Center. The LGBT Life Center currently has five locations throughout Norfolk and Hampton roads, providing a clinic, testing, mental health care, and support groups, amongst other valuable resources.
