A PROJECT OF OUTREACH LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY CENTER
ABOUT THE ROAD FORWARD
The Road Forward is an OutReach LGBTQ+ Community Center initiative made possible by grants from The New Harvest Foundation and the All of Us Research Program, launching spring of 2021.
The Road Forward is a series of virtual education and skill development programs targeted to our underserved and marginalized LGBTQ+ homeless, the transgender and gender nonconforming communities, LGBTQ+ seniors, LGBTQ+ communities of color, and LGBTQ+ individuals struggling with behavioral health, substance use, and alcohol.
OutReach has partnered with financial advisers, healthcare, mental health, and AODA (Alcohol and Other Drug Addictions) human service professionals to develop the workshop programs that would first, assess needs, then provide resources and tools to address COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on our LGBTQ+ community and offer a road map for the post-pandemic road forward.
Participants will be able to register for one or more of the no-cost workshops in the series, facilitated by a professional in the content area. Note: All workshops are scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m.

The Road Forward workshop series was made possible by a grant from the New Harvest Foundation.
New Harvest Foundation is the only foundation in Dane County that channels charitable contributions exclusively to organizations working to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) rights, services, culture and community development.
Founded in 1984, New Harvest Foundation is operated by a volunteer Board of Directors and assisted by a team of friends. It pools contributions of hundreds of donors each year to provide grant money to LGBTQ causes.
As a Foundation, we raise funds from the broad community through events and fund raising campaigns. Contributors may designate their tax-deductible gifts to the Grants Program or to the Endowment. In 1996 the Foundation established an endowment to expand its financial base and to ensure a prosperous future.

The Road Forward workshop series was provided additional funding by the All of Us Research Program (Wisconsin).
The University of Wisconsin-Madison is part of a nationwide effort to gather health data from more than 1 million people to help accelerate innovation in health care research.
The mission of All of Us is simple: to speed up health research and medical breakthroughs. In addition, the program is focused on precision medicine, seeking to make health care more personalized with considerations for an individual’s environment, lifestyle and family health history. Researchers will be able to use these data to conduct thousands of studies, which may help them discover and match the right treatment to the right person at the right time.
UW-Madison is calling on volunteers like you. We hope you will help make history and change the future of health. The health data you share will be added to the All of Us Research Program database. Researchers can access these data to conduct studies. https://allofus.wisc.edu/
