Community Highlight - Salus Center

In the spirit of community and inclusivity, Rathbun Insurance is proud to highlight the Salus Center. Founded in 2017, the Salus Center has been a beacon of support and empowerment for Lansing's LGBTQIA+ communities. With a commitment to advocating for the rights of community members and celebrating the interconnectedness of oppression, the Salus Center has grown to become a vital gathering space and information hub.

The Salus Center's mission revolves around providing a safe, affirming, and welcoming space for LGBTQIA+ individuals and allies. They offer a wide range of programs, support groups, and partner organizations, all aimed at fostering a sense of belonging and empowerment within the community. Salus Center's commitment to diversity and inclusivity is evident in their diverse range of support groups and programs. Whether you're seeking community, information, or simply a welcoming space, the Salus Center has something for everyone. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Transfem Support Group: A safe and supportive space for transgender and gender non-conforming individuals who identify on the transfeminine spectrum. This group offers a sense of belonging and understanding for those navigating unique challenges.
  • Neurodivergent & Queer: Recognizing the intersection of neurodiversity and queerness, this group creates a space for individuals who identify as both neurodivergent and LGBTQIA+. It fosters connections and understanding among its members.
  • Here for You: An inclusive support group for anyone seeking community and understanding. This group welcomes all LGBTQIA+ individuals and allies, providing a space where everyone's story and experiences are valued.
  • Nonbinary Support Group: An established group that continues to thrive within the Salus Center. It offers a supportive environment for nonbinary individuals, addressing their unique needs and experiences.
  • Trans Masc Support Group: Another well-established group that provides valuable support for transgender individuals who identify on the transmasculine spectrum.

Additionally, many of these support groups offer hybrid joining options, allowing participants to choose between virtual or in-person meetings. This flexibility ensures that everyone can access the support they need in a way that suits them best.
