June marks #PrideMonth all over the world. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, gender non-binary, and two-spirited youth are overrepresented in the homeless community. Our doors are always open for youth ages 16 to 24 regardless of their race, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
Did you know:
- 25-40% of youth who are experiencing homelessness are LGBTQ2S
- Family rejection is the most common cause of LGBTQ2S+ youth homelessness
- LGBTQ2S+ youth are much more likely to struggle with mental health concerns, including suicide
