The Spahr Centerhttp://www.thespahrcenter.org
What We Do:
The Spahr Center was created in March 2015 through the merger of Marin AIDS Project (MAP) and Spectrum LGBT Center (Spectrum), and named for the founder of our two organizations, Jane Spahr. The two agencies worked side by side through the years; MAP concentrated on direct, health-related services and prevention/education for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS while Spectrum focused on advocacy, education and support for the LGBT community.The Boards of Directors merged the two agencies to assure that Marin would continue to have a strong voice for LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS issues, and a safe, welcoming, and supportive center for our communities.
Who We Are:
From the beginning, MAP was the only AIDS service organization in the county and Spectrum, Marin‚??s only LGBT Center. Through the years, MAP and Spectrum worked side by side, each providing programs, services, support and advocacy. MAP concentrated on providing health related services and HIV prevention and education. Spectrum focused on advocacy, education and supportive services for the LGBTQ community in both Marin and the North Bay.
