The Phoenix Center opened in 2001 as a safe space for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) youth to meet. Since those early days we have expanded to provide other programs and services. Current services include:

      • LGBTQA Youth Group
      • Free HIV, Hepatitis C Testing, Condoms, Gonorrhea & Chlamydia Screening
      • Billy’s House Transitional Housing Program
      • Community Education & Outreach
      • SHaRI Project (Springfield Harm Reduction Program)
      • Counseling & Support Groups
      • Springfield Pride

If you are in need of a particular service that we do not offer, please feel to call us – maybe we can provide a referral or help you in some way!

Thank you for visiting our site!

Phoenix Center Board & Staff


We have been getting calls about gay and lesbian “friendly” wedding¬† vendors. This includes caterers, florists, photographers, venues, etc. The Phoenix Center staff is making calls to area vendors and compiling a list of those who want to be a part of making your day wedding day special. If you or someone you¬†know someone who wants to be on the list, call the Phoenix Center!
