The statewide LGBT advocacy group has long housed its main Bay Area office in the second-floor of a building closer to the heart of the gayborhood at 2370 Market Street above H&R Block. But the location was not wheelchair accessible, and in April, someone broke into the office and stole several computers.
On Monday, June 24 the staff will open the new office inside the community center at 1800 Market Street in Suite 401. The room is part of a warren of small offices built on the center’s top floor meant to be rented by local LGBT groups.
According to an EQCA press release, the relocation will reduce its overhead costs and allow it to better collaborate with other community-based organizations.
“The center is a landmark for the LGBT community in San Francisco, and we will be proud to work side-by-side with other LGBT community organizations,” stated EQCA Executive Director John O’Connor. “We are grateful to the center for making this arrangement possible.”
