New LGBTQ drop-in center opens in Joliet


Joliet welcomed a new drop-in center for LGBTQ youth this week.

The center was opened with the cooperation of Joliet Pride Network, PFLAG Lockport-Homer GlenYouth Outlook, and the Spanish Community Center.

Youth Outlook’s Nancy Mullen said that youth from two different schools attended. The opening also welcomed new volunteers, youth and a donor for the center.

Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer at the center can apply at the website. They can also donate money there and earmark it for the Joliet drop-in center.
