Q Center is pleased to announce the selection of Barbara McCullough-Jones as the organization’s next Executive Director. Barbara was chosen through a national search and she brings more than 20 years of executive nonprofit experience to Q Center.

Barbara was the executive director of the LGBTQ Community Center in San Jose, California, was a founding member of the LGBTQ Center in Phoenix, Arizona and also founded the Lesbian Resource Project in Tempe, Arizona. Barbara served as President of the Association of United Way Agencies and represented more than 1,400 businesses during her time there.

“I am honored to be selected to lead Q Center at such an important time in its history. Q Center is emerging as a leader on many fronts that serve to provide LGBTQ people with quality experiences in all facets of our lives. The LGBTQ community and Q Center are important parts of the fabric that is Portland. I look forward to working with our diverse community and allies as we take the next step in building a place and programs to be proud of,” said McCullough-Jones.

Barbara and her spouse, Sandra, are from the Northwest and look forward to being back in the region again to continue their work and to enjoy everything the Portland area has to offer.
