Pride Action Tank ( PAT ) is seeking input on people's needs, inspirations and preferences through an anonymous needs assessment survey.
Completing the needs assessment will help PAT better advocate for individuals; strengthen partnerships with existing South Side organizations and institutions; and inform the services and programming for a proposed South Side LGBTQ+ center and health clinic.
The organization will use this information to better understand the service and program needs and desires of the members of Chicago's South Side diverse LGBTQ+ communities as well as the preferred attributes of a community center on the South Side.
PAT is focused on improving outcomes and opportunities for LGBTQ+ communities in the Chicago region. A project of AIDS Foundation Chicago, PAT's mission is to improve the health, safety and progress of individuals and groups within the LGBTQ+ community by inspiring, supporting and leading collaborative action that improves policy, service, access and community dynamics in the core areas of housing, health, safety, financial security, youth and aging.
