Youth Testimonial:
“The Central Illinois PRIDE Health Center is an amazing resource for me. When I first heard about a youth group for LGBT youth and allies, I immediately jumped at the chance to find other people who have a similar story to me. I was not disappointed in the Friends Like Us, youth group. They help support me and give me lots of advice and I can always trust them. But my favorite thing is that they are accepting of everyone and are a loving group; and if you feel like you need to talk to someone, or share your thoughts with the group, it is a very safe place to do so.”
