Just Out is reporting that SMYRC, the Sexual Minority Youth Resource Center, may move into Cascadia’s Garlington Center on MLK, the site that’s being rebuilt after fire damage. SMYRC’s current building in SE Portland is crumbling, and I know that Cascadia is looking for a new home for them.
A friend and I hold a dance/fundraiser every year, and turn all of the proceeds over to SMYRC. Please check it out.
I’m also hearing that Community Warehouse, an organization that distributes used furniture to community members in need, will move its storefront selling mattresses and unclaimed furniture to the public to the former Hannah Bea’s space, at Shaver and MLK.
