Local youth still struggle with their families in terms of acceptance of their LGBTQ identities and LGBTQ Connection wants to do more to help. In an effort to harness the incredible support and generosity of our community to support these youth, we are building a list of those who would like to be contacted when urgent needs arise that would support an LGBTQ young person at risk of homelessness or in crisis. Requests might be for housing (emergency overnight, short-term or long-term rental), but may also be a bag of food, a ride, or something else (help securing an ID, clothes for work, a gas card, etc.). Signing up for this list means you are interested in receiving these urgent requests. These requests are unpredictable, but generally happen about once a month or less.
