A BIT ABOUT US
Here at the North Carolina Out Professionals, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. Since 2018, we’ve been supporting our community members in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by monetary size, but by more qualitative measurements such as the scale and effectiveness of our efforts. Just imagine what we can achieve together!
The NCOP raises money to help other LGBTQ+ organizations that support LGBT Youth programs and the addiction crisis within our community, along with supporting programs and organizations that offer free testing and prevention to the Raleigh community.
Funds that are raised will be distributed to organizations that are supportive of the LGBTQ+ community and help with homeless LGBT+ Community as well as drug rehabilitation. Along with organizations such as the LGBT Center, Alliance of Aids Services, and other organizations that need our help.
We believe that together with other non-profits in our areas, such as the LGBT Centers, we can help make a dent and improve someone’s way of life, by showing them the care and compassion of the family that we are.
Chris Domingo founded the National Association of Out Professionals with the vision and drive to improve upon our LGBT+ community, and focused on developing the organization with experience and integrity.
