Support 500 LGBTQ Oregon Youth

Sep 24, 2012

Back to School

It's September and for many youth that means back to school. For some youth that participate in our programs it's just another month. That's because they have no home, no school and no support.

At Q Center we are working hard to change all that.

In partnership with Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare and with your support we are providing 1:1 counseling and case management to better identify challenges and barriers to success. We continue to explore partnership that lower academic risk and encourage staying in school.

As a companion project - we know even some schools are not yet a safe space for LGBTQ youth. That is why we are partnering with organizations such as Oregon Safe Schools and Communities Coalition, GLSEN, Cascade AIDS Project and many others to present Oregon's Queer Youth Summit this May.

We invite you to stay in partnership with Q Center as we continue our quest to create a safe space for LGBTQ youth to learn and grow. Your contribution through Global Giving and volunteer time ARE the difference.

Thank you for your continued support!
