This past year awareness of the staggering statistics concerning homeless youth brought light to the large percentage, up to 40%, that are homeless LGBTQ+ youth. In many cases they have been forced from their homes. The primary reason for being homeless is because they are LGBTQ+ and they face the difficulties that non acceptance brings.
All youth deserve help and need your help now. Bringing awareness to the fact the number of LGBTQ+ homeless youth is staggering should not diminish the overall picture of all the youth who face challenges at such young tender ages and that it is just not fair in all senses of the word.
This is your chance to help out our local Covenant House raise some much needed funds with a Pride Party Fundraiser.
