Community Agreements

Affirmations’ mission is to provide a welcoming space where people of all sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and cultures can find support and unconditional acceptance, and where they can learn, grow, socialize, and feel safe. These Community Agreements ensure we create a space in alignment with that mission.


These Community Agreements outline our expectations for everyone, whether a visitor, client, volunteer, or employee. These agreements not only apply in our building, but also in virtual meetings or off-site center events.

We agree to not engage in the following behaviors:


  • Violent behavior, harassment, or inappropriate touching
  • Use of discriminatory or derogatory language
  • Theft, vandalism, littering
  • Possession, use, or storage of any weapons
  • Possession, use, sale, or storage of illegal/illicit drugs
  • Public intoxication, smoking, or vaping
  • Use of restrooms that interferes with other’s ability to use them
  • Photographing/video/recording of others without their consent (outside of an event)
  • Being unclothed (shoes/socks/shirt/pants/etc)
  • Solicitation, including but not limited to financial, political, sexual, and other
  • Use of audio that disrupts others


Youth ages 12 or under must be accompanied by a guardian unless attending a program or service.


Center use/availability:

Main Floor – open to all during center hours

Lower Level – restricted, unless attending a group, event or appointment

Upper Level – open to all until 6pm, unless attending a group, event, or appointment


If you see community members in violation of this agreement, please inform a center volunteer or staff member. Do not intervene yourself.


Failure to abide by the above agreement can result in revoked access to the building and/or its services.
