COLORS Community Center is an inclusive advocacy and social service organization actively working to meet the needs for safety, empowerment, education, and wellbeing of Northeast Florida’s LGBTQIA+ community.


Our vision is to be the community center in Jacksonville where adults who identify as LGBTQIA+ can safely be themselves and access resources, without judgement or discrimination, at times when most other agencies are closed.


  • To provide services when most other agencies are closed.
  • To link people to the resources they need in a timely manner.
  • To provide a healthy environment for managing life’s stressors.
  • To be a safe space where people can be themselves without judgement or discrimination.
  • To be a one stop shop for free resources for the LGBTQIA+ community in Northeast Florida.
