The Kansas City Center for Inclusion, Inc. (KCCI) is Kansas City’s LGBTQ+ community center. Originally founded under a different name in 2012, KCCI is proud of our heritage but focused on the future.
Our Mission: To operate exclusively for charitable purposes by providing a safe, welcoming community space where LGBTQ+ individuals, their families, friends, and straight allies can come for education, resources, and activities; and by providing community outreach in building a cohesive LGBTQ+ community in the Midwest.
In addition to providing a community meeting space and a LGBTQ-focused lending library, KCCI focuses on hosting or supporting community events, such as our annual Equality Teen Prom and educational sessions as well as AIDS Walk and Kansas City PRIDE. KCCI is also pleased to offer an annual scholarship to an area youth who is interested in helping improve the LGBTQ community.
Our Center is open from Monday to Thursday, 4PM to 8PM, and Friday through Saturday, 1PM to 5PM. We are available to provide referrals to other resources, including an on-site counselor.
