We believe that LGBTQ youth are amazing.
We don't just believe it, we know that it's true. So that means we care, and that we hope you will care, too.
LGBTQ youth are resilient, talented, strong, smart, beautiful - and more. Everything you might imagine a fabulous youth to be. LGBTQ youth may - often, even - face unique and difficult challenges just because of who they are. That's where we come in (and hope that you will join us).
The Continuum of Care is all about empowering youth and those that love them to make things better, now - to address school safety, and bullying by students, teachers and staff.
~To prevent youth from becoming homeless, and to provide immediate and appropriate help for youth experiencing homelessness.
~To work to prevent LGBTQ youth suicide, depression and other mental and physical health issues that so often are the result of macro and micro aggressions that happen day after day after day...
~And then there's faith - shouldn't each and every youth be able to decide for themselves what they believe, and not be told that God doesn't love them, because of who they are?
~Oh - and family - when it works, it's one of THE BEST protective factors out there, but when families are rejecting, well, that's when suicide, homelessness, drug use, STD's and other negative things pile on.
There's more, but that's enough for now. Join us?
