Ways to Help

Since November 2011, our program has helped over 35 homeless LGBT youth. Some of our success stories include helping individuals find employment, get back in school, reunite with their families, and save up enough to move into their own apartments.

In order to do this work, we have relied on our community for financial, goods, and service donations, and on the hard work of our volunteers and volunteer leadership. Volunteer information is available here.

Please look at our needs, below, and contact us if you can be of help in any way. All donations are fully tax-deductible to the extent required by law. Please let us know if you would like a receipt for your donation.
