The Center will continue to be closed to the public until further notice. We feel it is safest for everyone to continue social distancing and get vaccinated. Depending on where the community is, we hope to be re-open in the next few months. We look forward to seeing you all again soon!
Again, we will continue to be vigilant about responding to email, voicemail and Facebook messages.

In accordance with purple tier guidelines from the CDC, the Center will be closed to the public until further notice. We had hoped to stay open during the evening for anyone who needed to see someone face-to-face, however, we feel it is safest for everyone to practice social distancing. We will continue to be vigilant about responding to email, voicemail and Facebook messages.
Dear LGBTQ+ community and loved ones,
Amidst the new guidance from the California Department of Public Health on group gatherings in the state, we’re being thoughtful about our responsibility and commitment to care for each other, in community and with compassion. Specifically, the guidance recommends that groups most at risk for contracting COVID-19 – including older adults, people living with HIV, and others -- avoid gathering in groups of 10 or more.
Our obligation to community and connection drives our work every day. With an eye on the future of our collective health and longevity, we are making the decision to follow the recommendations of the expert public health officials in an effort to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus by suspending or changing current programming at The NorCal OUTreach Center and/or sponsored by The NorCal OUTreach Center.
