Project Fierce Chicago is a grassroots collective of long-time social workers, queer activists, housing advocates and other service providers that have come together to create a community-funded project to provide an affirming home for LGBTQ homeless young adults. We launched the organization publicly with a fundraising campaign in April of 2013 to raise funds to file our 501(c)3 application, and were overwhelmed by the community’s response! We received a great deal of media coverage, and raised $15,000 – largely from small ($50 and under) donations from community members. Since our initial campaign, our collective has tripled in size, we have received our legal non-profit status and we’ve successfully raised a third of our first-year operating budget. We are moving forward and growing rapidly.
