Cindy Killion – Former Board President

Killion-CherneAs founding mothers of the LGBT Resource Center for the 7 Rivers Region, it has special significance to us. We joined with others 10 years ago to build a Center that would create an LGBT community and be a resource to others in the region wanting to educate themselves about LGBT issues. We’re happy the Center’s vision has become reality. For example, one day a couple of women wandered in; they were seeking information, as they were in a relationship. They didn’t know anything about the LGBT community nor did they know anyone. The Center was able to provide them information and link them into the community so they didn’t feel isolated. The Center is providing that crucial link to community that we envisioned. The Center also has launched programs that educate others in the community about LGBT issues, which promotes understanding and creates an accepting environment in the community.
