  • About the Organization

    Founded in 1973, Bill Wilson Center is a nonprofit community-based organization serving more than 6,300 clients in Santa Clara County annually. It is the mission of Bill Wilson Center to support and strengthen the community by serving youth and families through counseling, housing, education, and advocacy. With an emphasis on youth development, Bill Wilson Center programs focus on building self-confidence and developing personal assets. With these tools, youth can permanently change the direction of their lives. BWC’s LGBTQ Services, which is located at the Drop-In Center in Downtown San Jose, provides a safe and supportive environment for youth to form peer groups and share experiences.
