South Florida's LGBTQ youth face multiple challenges such as high risk for alcohol/drug abuse, HIV & STD infection, pregnancy, homelessness, depression, and self-harm and suicide. Over 600 low-income LGBTQ youth are engaged in our services annually. Last year we successfully intervened with 8 youth to prevent suicide. We also found housing for 8 homeless youth. Providing safe space for youth, improving self-awareness, confidence and helping youth develop a positive self-image saves lives!
