The Queer Unity Empowerment Support Team (QUEST), established in 2015, is a community-based collaborative formed to create healthy, inclusive and safe spaces for members of the LGBT community in the Greater Waterbury area that foster meaningful relationships, learning and joy.
To achieve this mission, QUEST has assumed the following roles:
- serve as a community educator to the public and its institutions on matters that are important to the LGBTQ community,
- facilitate joyful and healing spaces via public events and community-led projects,
- act as a community liaison between community members and positive and affirming service providers in the youth development, medical and mental health fields, and
- advocate for the socio-political needs of LGBTQ folks identified by the LGBTQ community.
QUEST receives funding from Connecticut Community Foundation
