For several weeks, the staff and volunteers of Positive Impact have been painting and decorating the new M.I.S.T.E.R. Community Center set to open on Valentine's Day to the public.
It's just one way the agency is showing its love, says Chandler Bearden, prevention specialist of Community Outreach for M.I.S.T.E.R., which stands for "Men's Information Services: Testing * Empowerment * Resources."
The community center, located in Positive Impact's space at 139 Ralph McGill Boulevard, will be open for visitors on Monday from 5-7 p.m.
"True to the tagline 'Anything a gay man wants to find he can find at MISTER', the center will be a resource for gay and gay-friendly information related to social clubs, arts, entertainment, sports, nightlife and more," Bearden said in a press release.
"The Center will also provide educational workshops, support groups and social activities to promote networking in addition to its already running HIV prevention services such as HIV testing, STD screening and one-on-one counseling."

Positive Impact provides culturally competent mental health and and prevention services.
