Metro Wellness and Community Centers

Metro Wellness & Community Centers provides active LGBT Community Center locations throughout the Tampa Bay area with social activities, classes, support groups, counseling, health and fitness programs, youth programs, substance abuse programs, elder programs, mental health services HIV education and prevention, and free HIV testing. In 2014, Metro will open the area's LGBT Welcome Center and Coffee House in the Grand Central District of St. Petersburg offerring travel resources, package deals and insider tips on how visitors can get the most out of their stay in Tampa Bay. If you’re a resident, we’ll help you discover the latest arts & cultural events, get connected to ticket locations, and access deals to dine, play and be entertained in the area. We’ll also be your local LGBT coffee house, where you can meet friends, study, hold meetings, enjoy first dates, read a book, and participate in enriching programs. We’ll specifically focus on being a safe space for LGBT youth, where they can freely be themselves in a supportive environment with their peers.
