A Grass-Roots Approach to Health Care for the LGBT Citizens of Rehoboth
By Katy Ray
The Mautner Project and CAMP Rehoboth Cares have teamed up to fill a gap in the health services provided to LGBT members of the Rehoboth Beach, DE community. For over 22 years, Create A More Positive (CAMP) Rehoboth has fostered community, provided services, and planned activities for the LGBT citizens of Rehoboth. Now in conjunction with the Mautner Project, the national lesbian health organization, CAMP Rehoboth will be training volunteers through their latest collaborative effort: CAMP-Mautner Cares.

As I write this article, I have an incredible view of the Lewes-Rehoboth canal from the huge outdoor deck at Irish Eyes Restaurant. The sky is a brilliant blue, the sun is sparkling on the water, and lots of boats sit bobbing in their slips. I smile because it looks like a scene from a jigsaw puzzle and I still can’t believe I live here.
Three years ago, a group of local LGBT individuals made a personal and financial commitment to give back to their community. Recently their dedication and hard work has paid off.
