The MOCHA Center offers social events and other programs focused on improving the health and wellness of LGBTQ people of color—in mind, body, and spirit. We are a place where every voice is heard, the staff knows where you are coming from, and all are welcome.


Founded in 1996 as the Men of Color Health Awareness Project, The MOCHA Center has worked to educate Black and Latino men in Rochester about living a sex-positive life. Over the years, our mission and the people we work with have grown. Now in partnership with Trillium Health, we’ve turned into a community health center that offers both community and health in equal amounts—providing a safe place to network, socialize, and address any health issues you face.


Just like you, everyone on The MOCHA Center staff has a story about what brought them here. We have faced our own challenges and victories, and we are ready to help you live the way you want, with the freedom you deserve. The support, education, and environment we offer are put together by people who uniquely understand you. Stop by and say hey so we can show you what it’s all about.
