$25/day – Safe & Sound

ONE in four of American youths will become homeless the day they come out.

LGBTQ+ youth experience many hardships, but one of the biggest is homelessness. 40% of homeless youth are LGBTQ+, and family rejection is the number ONE reason. Despite these elevated rates of homelessness, response systems do not address LGBTQ+ issues and offer services specifically tailored to their individual needs.  

As a result, LGBTQ+ youth are often misunderstood and mistreated, making it difficult to obtain even the most basic needs for survival. In addition to facing stigma, rejection and a lack of social support, homelessness has many detrimental short and long-term consequences for LGBTQ+ youth including increased rates of substance abuse and incarceration, mental and physical health challenges, and early death. 

It is more important today than ever that our community creates safe sanctuaries for our homeless LGBTQ+ youth in which to live and heal, and where they can feel welcomed, appreciated, valued and loved for all that they are. 

We’re fighting for our most vulnerable youth.  Help us provide proper housing, resources, and support as they find their place in the world; a world where they can live authentically, proudly, and fiercely. You can make a difference.  Join our mission, and together, we can become ONE in ending LGBTQ+ youth homelessness. 

Just ONE $25 donation keeps ONE young adult protected for ONE day and ONE night in a loving, supportive safe home.
