Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer + Pride Initiative

The mission of the Contra Costa Health (CCH) Pride Initiative is to integrate practices and policies that foster a safe and inclusive environment, equal access and quality health care as well as awareness, acceptance and respect for our lesbian, gay, transgender, queer, and nonbinary employees and people we serve.


Contra Costa Health (CCH) is a model of equality, respect and health for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and nonbinary (LGBTQ+) people.


  • County is safe, supportive, and provides a welcoming environment for LGBTQ+ clients, consumers, customers, patients, and staff.
  • CCHS workforce is trained appropriately to serve LGBTQ+ community.
  • Pride Initiative efforts are visible and have demonstrated in CCHS a measurable impact.
