SouthCoast LGBTQ Network, Inc. (d/b/a South Coast LGBTQ Network) was incorporated on August 10, 2017. In June 2018, the Network ended its financial Management Agreement with the Community Foundation of Southeastern Massachusetts.
The Steering Committee was replaced with a Board of Directors form of governance. In December 2017, Eileen Dugas was hired as our pat-time Network Coordinator and we opened our office at 405 County St., New Bedford, MA 02740.
The South Coast LGBTQ Network was incorporated at a 501c3 nonprofit organization effective August 10, 2017. The new Board of Directors replaces the Steering Committee, but many of our former Steering Committee members continue to serve as Board Members or Volunteers and continue their collaborative efforts to enrich the lives of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) individuals and families.
Local businesses, legislators, elected officials, volunteers and allied organizations in the South Coast communities of Massachusetts work together to ensure the success of this nonprofit organization.
Our mission is to build and maintain a comprehensive support network for LGBTQ individuals and families across the age spectrum.
