The mental health programs that Steven helped put in place are serving many members of our community and we look forward to building on the foundation Steven created during his tenure at the Utah Pride Center.
Day to day operations will continue under the direction of Sheila Raboy in the position of Interim Operations Director.

With your help, we will launch our Youth Advocacy-Focused Mentor Program to give LGBTQ youth the personalized support they need to thrive. With your generous support, we plan to hire a case manager to assist youth at the highest levels of risk and find them the help they need to become vibrant, productive young adults.

2014 By the Numbers
A Year of Pride
Wow. This has been an incredible year. We have seen marriage equality come to Utah. Under new leadership from Steven Ha, the Utah Pride Center has built a Community Counseling and Wellness Program with two full-time therapists, laid the ground-work for a new youth advocacy based mentoring program, and is now accepting insurance as well as medicaid and Medicare. All of this increases our capacity to support our communities health and well-being in a safe space. At this year's Utah Pride Festival we were honored to have the plaintiffs from Utah's case against Utah's Amendment 3 as our Grand Marshals. We also drew 34,608 people to the festival and 35,000 people turned out for our amazing parade. This year we also increased efforts to serve Pride
