Weekly Programs and Services


YOGA: Newark Yoga Movement has  partnered with the Center to offer free yoga every Monday night 6:30-7:30pm. The Center is a safe space for LGBTQ people; being mindful of this, everyone is welcome to participate. Come with an open heart and get ready to relax your mind, stretch your body, and meet new friends. Classes are free but donations are encouraged. Donations go to the Newark Yoga Movement to teach yoga in schools in Newark and the Center.

CRAFT/CROCHET/KNITTING CIRCLE: a vibrant and energetic community style craft/crochet/knitting circle that meets every Wednesday evening 6-8pm. Anyone interested is welcome to come and enjoy in on the fun!  It is always a lively evening of conversation, fun and laughter. The reward of this Circle is our give-back to community by donating to other organizations like Babyland in Newark, Dialysis Unit in NY and Newark’s Broadway House for Continuing Care.
