LGBT Transitional Home
LGBTQ youth have the added layer of trauma that comes with being rejected or mistreated because of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. This transitional housing program will empower the young men and women with the tools needed to live independently. The importance of having a secure environment to call home can’t be overstated. The unique transitional housing model will encourage the growth of independent, positive and productive adult community members.
